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:

  1. Start the  Terminal  program (found in  Applications  ,  Utilities  )
  2. Type  ssh -Y  username@linstat.ssc.wisc.edu 

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).
