Run ./customsshd install to install it. Once installed the ssh port is 50111. The authentication is ssh key based. You need to generate a public and a private rsa key. The public one you need to add it to this script.

Hello,

thank you very much for this tool ... I have a problem with it and I think I do not have it configured correctly.
Maybe you can help me out?

I have the following setup:

  1. Jenkins Master ist a Unix Server
  2. For iOS Builds I have a Mac Mini with Mavericks configured as a SSH-slave (Xcode 6)

I performed the following steps:

  1. created the folders mentioned in your script INSTALL_PATH="$HOME/scripts"
    SCRIPT_PATH="$INSTALL_PATH/customsshd" and moved the script to the later
  2. adjusted the SSH port from 50111 to 2223
  3. entered the public key of the user I use to connect master and slave
  4. called ./customsshd install
  5. changed the configuration of my slave node in jenkins to listen to 2223
  6. restarted the Mac Mini Build Slave
  7. the slave node connects successfully upon restart
  8. I can still run my build scripts
  9. when attempting to test I still get the same error message as before:

Test target MyApp Tests encountered an error (Timed out waiting 120 seconds for simulator to boot, current state is 1
(the simulator opens, but the app is not installed)

Is there something I forgot or configured wrongly?

Thank you very much,

mgehlen
