- If you already got the account info from me,
- But you don't know how to connect the server using that info,
Here's the brief instruction. I assume that you use Windows machine (XP, Vista, or Win7).
First, download 'putty.exe' from putty website: http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/download.html
If you are still confused, just click this.
You can see 'putty' or 'putty.exe' file on your computer. Click the file, so you can see the window like this.
If you use Mac OSX, it is very easy to connect server.
- Open 'Terminal'
- Type 'ssh cygnus.icmb.utexas.edu'
Then, type your id and password. That's it. (I am not sure whether ssh client is a default app or not. But I believe that you can find the way to install it if it is not installed in your mac.)
