How to connect to the HPC using SSH
To start you will need to open a terminal or command line interface. If you are using MobaXterm, use that. Otherwise open your terminal (Linux, Mac).
In MobaXterm (assuming that you've completed the installation), click the button 'Start Local Terminal' in order to get to the command line.
Next, you will need to login via an ssh session through the login node.
You must be given access by the HPC administrator (which can be requested by contacting the HelpDesk). Login as so:
[userlocal ~]$ [userlocal ~]$ ssh User.Name@hpc.usd.edu
Note: use hpc.usd.edu, not coyotes.usd.edu
You will then be prompted for a password. Enter you regular USD credentials. If you have more than five failed attempts at logging in you will be locked out for one hour or until access is reinstated by the system administrator.
The password you type will not show up on the screen.
Once logged in successfully, all users should get the following message:
