Accessing TJ Resources Remotely

From Livedoc - The Documentation Repository
Jump to: navigation, search

There are many instances in which you may wish to access the Computer System Lab's computing resources from home. This guide details how to do that.

Using the remote access servers

You can use the ssh protocol to access the Computer Systems Lab. This method will provide you with a text-based terminal, much like one the Terminal application available on CSL workstations.

Generic instructions

Using your favorite SSH client, connect to remote.tjhsst.edu. Your username is the same one you use for accessing other computing services at TJHSST.

On Windows

  1. Download putty.exe from http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/download.html. Save it somewhere, and then run it.
  2. Make sure the "Connection Type" field is set to "SSH".
  3. Type remote.tjhsst.edu in the Host Name field, then click the Open button.
  4. You will now see a black window appear, prompting you for your username. This is the same username you use for other TJHSST services (including the student intranet).
  5. You will see a welcome message, and a password prompt. Type your password. Nothing will be shown as you type your password. This is a security feature.

On Mac OS X or GNU/Linux

  1. Open the Terminal application from the application launcher.
  2. Type ssh username@remote.tjhsst.edu in the prompt, and press Enter.
  3. If this is your first time connecting, you may see a prompt asking you to verify host keys. You can probably safely answer "yes" to this prompt.
  4. You will now see a password prompt. Type your password. Nothing will be shown as you type your password. This is a security feature.

If your password has expired, you will need to change it. Follow the instructions that appear. Unless there are restrictions placed on your account, you will be able to run commands from inside the CSL.
