Logging In

There are two ways to login into Compute resources:

compute.hpc.temple.edu (SSH)

Login to compute.hpc.temple.edu using the Secure Shell (SSH) protocol. An SSH client/terminal software is required to be installed on the computer being used to access the cluster. A popular free SSH client for Windows is PuTTY. Unix/Linux and MacOS X users can use the ssh command to login into the machine. The following command would generally be used.

ssh ACCESSNETID@compute.hpc.temple.edu

ssh will prompt for a password and on successful login a shell prompt will be displayed. The prompt indicates to the user that the shell is ready to accept commands. This is mostly suitable for running text mode applications. Since the server is running a Linux operating system, users will have to familiarize themselves with how to run calculations and programs on Linux machines.

Graphical Applications

Launching an application with a graphical user interface requires that the graphical data is redirected from the server to the local display. When logging in from a Linux machine this is ususally achieved through adding the -X or -Y flag to the ssh command and SSH will take care of the rest. On MacOSX and Windows and X11 display server software may need to be installed and/or configured/started first.

rstudio.hpc.temple.edu (HTTPS)

Use any web browser to connect to the dedicated R-Studio server. This will connect to an RStudio web interface to the locally installed R software. This provides a convenient and platform independent access to the R statistical software.

Connect to R-Studio

Use your AccessNet username and password to login.
