Frequently Asked Questions

Access to the HPC Facility is available through encrypted connections, such as ssh. The ssh program allows you to open a text console session on a remote computer. Thus ssh is essentially an encrypted version of telnet. When a connection with a computer is made, user name and password must be given which can be done using a graphical ssh program under windows, such as SSH Secure Shell Client and PuTTY.

Enter the host name (host name is 172.16.144.35), your username (in order to obtain your username and password please click Register or send a mail to hpcf.bu@gmail.com) and port number (port number is 22)
