Connecting to Linstat 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).
