Computing resources can be accessed both through the SSH gateway servers (pamd.sc.fsu.edu) and through the FSU VPN (https://vpn.fsu.edu).

SSH connection to pamd.sc.fsu.edu

Accessing the SSH gateway server is simple. Use your workstation's SSH client to directly log in to pamd.sc.fsu.edu. For example:

% ssh pamd.sc.fsu.edu

You will be prompted for a username and password. If the login information you entered is correct, you will have access to a shell on pamd.sc.fsu.edu. From this shell on pamd.sc.fsu.edu, users can access public computing resources.

Never use the pamd.sc.fsu.edu servers to run processor intensive jobs. More information on SSH access is available here.
