Connecting to the Cluster

Getting an Account

To request an account on the cluster, fill out as much as possible of the following Cluster Account Request Form.

Getting Connected with command line or VNC

All of the cluster servers which take logins (blackjack, kojack, etc.) can be accessed with a command-line shell program. This is the most basic level of interaction which is available for all servers. In addition, especially for Windows, most users find it convenient to also install a file transfer helper program. A few servers (kojack) are also set up for remote graphical interface connections, through VNC view programs.
