You can connect to the servers using "putty", an SSH client program that
has been installed on the departmental Windows machines, or by using ssh from another
UNIX machine. For security reasons, the department does not accept telnet
connections to our servers.
- If you are trying to log into the console of a UNIX workstation, press return once or twice to clear
the screensaver. Enter your username and password at the prompts; most workstations
in the department are running the X Display Manager interface (XDM).
- Note that the University retired the modem pool it hosted at 412-297-7488 on January 31, 2012.
If you are dialing in on a modem, you will need to use your own ISP.
