Even though you might be working on a PC, at some point of time, you might need to interface to a Unix Machine. You might be doing this now without knowing it! For eg. checking email on your Math account or accessing this webpage which is on the Math server, a Unix machine!
Here is a brief introduction to access your account on the Math server. The same information can be used for any other Unix machine, provided of course you are a valid user on that system.
Double click on the 'SSH' icon. This will bring up a SSH window. On the SSH Window select 'CONNECT'. This should pop up a small window where you need to give the following information:
Host Name: math.la.asu.edu
User Name: xxxx (where 'xxxx' is your login name.)
Port Number: 2200
Authentication Method: password
(Most probably you need to supply just the Hostname and User Name fields since the other two fields are usually the default values.) Press the 'CONNECT' Button. Now the PC will try to connect to the unix server (in this case Math server) via the network. Before the unix machine lets you use its resources it needs to verify that you are a valid user on the system, therefore it asks you for your password. Enter that on the password prompts respectively. If the unix machine is able to authenticate you then it displays a welcome message and stops at the following prompt:
You have now successfully logged into the Math server.
If you were already on a unix machine, then you need to type in the following command at the command prompt of your terminal.
ssh -p 2200 <login_name>@math.la.asu.edu
Well you can run some basic commands like:
For now try this: telnet to math and logon and at the prompt type
