Connecting to CSCI Systems


The vast majority of users are just looking for a system to work from in linux. After authenticating and connecting via a VPN connection, a user can connect to various systems in the department. The most common need is to connect to a lab system in linux to complete coursework. The easiest way to do so is to open one’s terminal of choice and input the below command.

ssh -p922 ${username}@labs.cs.wwu.edu

Note

You will be prompted to enter your credentials twice.

Warning

Whenever you see ${username} replace it with your cs username (be sure to remove the ${} notation as well).

This will connect to a lab system which has the least amount of utilization in order to give you a better experience.
