Some tracks sessions require users to login to the cluster. Each participant is given an account. All participants were sent an email asking to send a public ssh2 key and a confirmation email with the user account was send after receiving a key.


To login to your account on the cluster please follow these steps:
  • MacOS / Linux
    1. open a terminal or an Xterm window
    2. ssh This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
    NOTE: The ssh command assumes a default ssh key name (id_dsa or Id_rsa) and location (in ~/.ssh/ directory). If you created your key with a different name or in a different location from a default, you will need to pass that name with -i flag.
    For example, you have created a key and saved it with the name myKey. In your ~/.ssh/ directory there will be 2 files: myKey file (private key) and myKey.pub file (public key). You have sent the public portion of the key (~/.ssh/myKey.pub file) to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
