Q:How do I log into one of these machines?
% telnet FISH.machine.cmcl.cs.cmu.edu Trying 18.104.22.168... Connected to FISH.machine.cmcl.cs.cmu.edu. Escape character is '^]'. [ Kerberos V4 accepts you ] [ Kerberos V4 challenge successful ] Red Hat Linux release 5.2 (Apollo) Kernel 2.0.36 on an i686 login: email@example.com ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ don't leave this out! password: [andrew password]
Alternatively, if you use ssh:
% ssh -l firstname.lastname@example.org FISH.machine.cmcl.cs.cmu.edu email@example.com@a.FISH.machine's password: [andrew password]
Don't forget to replace "FISH" with a cluster machine name from the table below.
