*** Please Note ***

From outside of UCSC IP space the only servers open for ssh connections are gateway.soe.ucsc.edu and ssh.soe.ucsc.edu. All other servers in the above listing are only open to connection from USCS IP space and eduroam IP space. You may wish to make use of the UCSC VPN service.

For Windows users, we recommend PuTTY. Macintosh and Linux users can open a Terminal window and type ssh login@servername.soe.ucsc.edu to connect (replacing login with your BSOE login name, and servername.soe.ucsc.edu with one of the servers listed above).
