Remote access via SSHNOTE: Remote access to all CCAR systems requires the use of the CU-VPN client.
Connecting from a Linux ComputerAs long as you have an account with CCAR, you'll be able to SSH to any Linux computer on our network. From any Linux or Unix computer (anywhere in the world) just type:
ssh -l USERNAME -X machinename.colorado.edu
Connecting from a Mac ComputerIf you are connecting from a Mac running OSX, you should have X11 installed on your Mac and use the X11 terminal window. The regular Mac terminal window will also work. Just use the above ssh command substituting "-Y" instead of "-X" and X11 forwarding should work.
Connecting from a Windows ComputerFor any Windows home user that needs to ssh onto any CCAR Linux machine we recommend using the following.
Download the following directly to your desktop:

This is just an ssh client for windows, it does do X11 forwarding but you need to configure it to do so. For X11 forwarding to your home Windows machine, you'll also have to install a program called Cygwin. Warning!!! Cygwin is hard to install and confusing to use. Proceed with it at your own risk.
