Connecting to Linstat from a Mac
How to connect to SSCC's Linstat servers from a Mac
Macs have all the software needed to connect to Linux servers installed by default, so connecting is very easy:
- Start the Terminal program (found in Applications , Utilities )
- Type ssh -Y firstname.lastname@example.org
username should be replaced by your SSCC username. If your username on your Mac is the same as your SSCC username, you can leave it out ( ssh -Y linstat.ssc.wisc.edu). If you are plugged into the wired network in the Sewell Social Sciences Building you can leave out the domain ( ssh -Y linstat).
If you need to connect to a particular Linstat machine, for example to monitor a long-running job, replace linstat with the name of the machine you need to connect to (linstat1, linstat2, linstat3, or linstat4).
