Getting Connected with command line or VNC
All of the cluster and stand-alone systems which take logins (RT, Prairie Thunder, etc.) can be accessed with a command-line shell program. This is the most basic level of interaction that is available for all servers. Also, especially for Windows, most users ﬁnd it convenient to install a ﬁle transfer helper program. A few servers are also set up for remote graphical interface connections, through VNC view programs.
