PyCharm 2016.1 Help

Configuring Remote Interpreters via SSH

In this section:


  • A ssh server should run on a remote host, since PyCharm runs remote interpreter via ssh-session.
  • If you want to copy your sources to a remote computer, create a deployment configuration, as described in the section Creating a Remote Server Configuration.

To configure a remote Python interpreter via SSH credentials

  1. In the Project Interpreter page of the Settings/Preferences dialog box, click cogwheel_framed.
  2. From the drop-down list, choose Add Remote.

    The dialog box Configure Remote Python Interpreter opens.

  3. In the dialog box Configure Remote Python Interpreter, click the radio-button SSH credentials:
  4. In the Configure Remote Python Interpreter dialog box, fill in the server information (host, port, etc.)
  5. The Python interpreter path field displays the path to the desired Python executable. You can accept default, or specify a different one.
  6. Click OK in the Configure Remote Python Interpreter dialog box. The configured remote interpreter is added to the list.
