Unix Connection Guide¶
MacOS / MacOSX shares a similar procedure to Unix/BSD Based system. Unix/Linux & MacOS systems have native support for the SSH Protocol, used to connect to the HPC.
Windows Sub-System For Linux¶
The windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) allows you to run a Linux Distribution as a sub-system inside the Windows Operating System. When following these instructions, a ‘terminal’ is the same as starting your WSL Distribution.
Logging In on Unix¶
The simplest manner is to open up a terminal windows and SSH into the HPC.
- Your Username is your FAN
- Your Password is your FAN Password.
These are the same credentials you use to login to OKTA. When successful, you will be logged into the system and presented with a screen similar to the image below:
You are now connected to the DeepThought HPC and ready to go.
SSH Keys on Unix¶
If you wish to setup password-less login via SSH Keys, you may do so.
