  • All our servers run Linux
  • You would usually log into our head (login node). It is called wonko.bi.up.ac.za.
  • An example from a Linux or Mac terminal session:
> ssh username@wonko.bi.up.ac.za

or if graphics forwarding is needed:

> ssh -X user@wonko.bi.up.ac.za
  • If you are logging in from a Windows machine, you can use a terminal emulator such as putty, BitVise or TeraTerm.
