Hi Rakesh,

You probably meant to mail the sherlock-discuss mailing list.

If you still have trouble with your ipython, feel free to mail us at 
research-computing-support at

Furthermore, the standard ipython/jupyter notebook functionality starts 
up a web server, and then you connect to that web server via a local 
browser, so that's a bit tougher if you only have SSH access.

We have an old farmshare example here, you'd want to set up SSH 
forwarding similarly for sherlock:
