PyCharm 2016.3 Help

Configuring Remote Interpreters via SSH

On this page:

Prerequisites

  • 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.
