You must use an ssh client to log in to a Math Department server using ssh.
From Windows machines
One client which seems to work quite well is putty, which you can download for free from http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/ .
From other machines
Any machine other than Windows should have a native ssh client. From a terminal window (shell), type
If you want to login and use the graphical user interface (GUI) of programs (e.g. Maple) then try
ssh -tCX USERNAME@login.math.berkeley.edu ssh -X beyonce
Then for example type
xmaple. Note that the above command opens a terminal session on the HPC server beyonce using login as an SSH gateway.
