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 .

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 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.
