How to Access the Cluster?

Log in at with an SSH capable terminal program or try the new Web browser interface, called Viewpoint. For more information, review our page about Interactive Sessions.

If you are unfamiliar with UNIX/Linux systems, we have a help page for Linux users. It will be necessary to learn some jargon for the Command Line Interface (CLI), no matter which method you use to connect with the cluster.

Security Restrictions

The cluster will allow logins from the KU campus network, but off-campus users will need to use the KU VPN (Virtual Private Network) known as KUanywhere. KU has instructions about how to use the VPN
