SSH

Access to the HPC systems is only available via secure methods such as SSH and SCP.

Please note that the following will only work within the FU network. If you are outside the network, you need to set up a VPN connection (in German).

To connect to one of the HPC systems, the following command is used:
   $  ssh <username>@<system name>.zedat.fu-berlin.de
For example
   $  ssh smith@soroban.zedat.fu-berlin.de

You will then be asked for your ZEDAT password.

If you want to start a program on the remote system which opens a window on your Linux computer under X, use the option -X. This also works on Mac OS X, but from Version 10.8 on the package XQuartz must be installed first.
