  • If you already got the account info from John or I, but you don't know how to connect to the server using that information, here are some brief instructions.


First, download 'putty.exe' from putty website:

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.


Type in the 'host' address (These images are from logging in to a computer named "cygnus". Yours should read "". Also check the port number and 'ssh' protocol.

Then, a new type of window will ask for your login id and password.


Tada! Now you are in the bit server.


If you want to logout, type 'exit'.


If you use Mac OSX, it is very easy to connect to the server.

  1. Open 'Terminal'
  2. Type 'ssh', where 'username' is your username, e.g., student103

Then, type your password. That's it.
