Note that our machinery doesn't make this very easy at present - e.g. the
notebook server only talks to kernels it started, so you can't create a
notebook and attach it to an existing kernel. And running a console or a qt
console with a kernel on another machine involves setting up SSH tunnels.

One simple thing you could do would be to run the notebook server itself on
the machine controlling the instrument - possibly under Jupyterhub, so
users have separate logins. But that's obviously quite a large service to
have running on a computer directly connected to important hardware.
