pony.noise is a headless Linux box at Noisebridge.


  • From the main Noisebridge network, the IP address is, and DNS has it at pony.noise.
  • From the Internet or the noisebridge-dsl wifi, a NAT port is forwarded from

SSH information

RSA key fingerprint is 9d:af:f4:94:70:65:ab:b2:af:a1:ad:03:2b:36:e6:43.

With the following stanza in ~/.ssh/config, you can ssh pony from outside, and ssh pony.local from inside.

Host pony | pony.local
   ForwardAgent no
   ForwardX11 no


If you want an account, add a SSH Key and an Adduser stanza to your User: page on the wiki; see User:Adi or User:Rubin110 or User:Miloh for examples. Then contact via email someone with full sudoers on Pony (see below) for an account, please provide a link to your user page to make it easier. Any Noisebridge member who agrees to be excellent to each other is welcome to an account. All users get sudo apt-get access; additional administration duties will be shared as necessary (asking nice works better then threatening to root the box).

Here is a tutorial on generating keys for and configuring ssh

Requests to change a user's shell after the account has been created will require a personal favor or a Double Dare. (Or you can simply use chsh.)
