Remote Login Access to CAE Unix Systems

The following document gives instructions on how to log in to the CAE network's Unix and Linux systems. Both text-only access and the ability to run graphical jobs using the X Window System are covered.

If You Require Both Text-based and Graphical Programs

Select your computer's operating system from the list below for instructions on setting up a secure shell (ssh) client and X server. Installing both a secure shell client and an X server will allow you to access CAE Unix and Linux systems from anywhere in the world, and will enable the display of graphical programs on your local computer's display.

If you Require Only Text-based Programs

Select your computer's operating system from the list below for instructions on setting up a secure shell (ssh) client. Installing a secure shell client by itself will allow you to access CAE Unix and Linux systems from anywhere in the world, but will disable the display of graphical programs on your local computer's display.
