SSH, for secure shell, is a protocol for safely connecting to an interactive shell. It replaces older and more insecure protocols, such als Telnet. Interactive servers within the Faculty of Science network are usually only accessible using SSH, sometimes even only from within the faculty Soliscom domain.

  • On Windows, PuTTY is a good SSH client.
  • On Linux and Mac OS systems, SSH clients are readily available. See also SSH with passphrase.
