Connect Client v0.5.5 setup problem

I've run the script to install Connect Client v0.5.5 from the Git repo using Python 2.7.13 on CentOS 7.4. I have an OSG Connect account, and am able to ssh to When I attempt to run the connect setup command, I get the following error, and connect test subsequently shows that I am not connected:


$ connect setup

Hi Nathan,

Unfortunately, the remote submission and job management capabilities of the connect client have been deprecated.  For now, you'll need to login to the OSG Connect submission nodes directly to submit jobs.
