-We have provided several computers that are accessible from outside the department. This allows students and faculty to remotely work on projects and access files. In order to get shell access, you will need to use SSH. This document contains information about connecting to the department network via SSH.   +#redirect VPN Configuration and Use

-**However, this method of remote access is in the process of being phased out.  See  [[VPN Configuration and Use]] for details on how to remotely connect through the CS Department VPN server.** +

-===== What computer do I connect to? ===== +
- +
-We have provided four computers using the current Linux image for remote access, which can be accessed by connecting to ''%% schizo.cs.byu.edu %%'' using your CS credentials (username and password).  This one address will drop you onto one of these machines.  When reporting problems with any of the schizo machines please be sure to report the specific host name, which can be found by typing ''%%hostname%%'' in the terminal. Please note that these machines are not to be used for heavy or intense processing since they are our only public facing lab machines.  **Please ssh into a workstation in any of the open lab machines after accessing one of the schizo machines.** +

-===== What program do I used to connect to schizo? ===== +
- +
-==== Terminal Access ==== +
- +
-If you are running Windows on your computer you will want to use Putty ([[http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/download.html]]) for terminal access via SSH.  This is a simple ssh client that will give you whichever shell you have specified in your profile. +
- +
-If you are using Mac OS X you can use the built-in ''%% ssh %%'' command from Terminal.app to connect to schizo in the following manner: ''%% ssh exampleuser@schizo.cs.byu.edu %%'' +
- +
-If you are using any of the various Linux distros you can use the built-in ''%%ssh%%'' from your favorite terminal program with the same syntax as for Mac OS X above.   +
- +
-==== File Browsing ==== +
- +
-If you are using Windows you can use WinSCP ([[http://winscp.net/eng/download.php]], just ignore all the annoying "Download Now" ads) to browse your home directory via the scp protocol.  You will connect to schizo.cs.byu.edu just as you would for ssh access. +
- +
-A cross-platform tool available for Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux is FileZilla ([[https://filezilla-project.org]]).  Enter ''%%schizo.cs.byu.edu %%'' in the 'Host' field, your CS credentials in the 'User' and 'Password' fields, and 22 in the 'Port' field. +
