You can use SSH to remotely login to the Linux Lab computers in Adams Hall. To do this on a Windows computer, you will need to install Cygwin. If you are using a Mac, you can use the Terminal.
- Open Cygwin (on Windows) or Terminal (on Mac).
- Enter the following command:
ssh -p 5010 firstname.lastname@example.org
The username is your Hofstra Portal username (e.g. h702345678) and the xx is a number from 01 to 30.
- Type yes and press Enter.
- Type in your Linux account password and press Enter. The default password is your 700 number (e.g. 702345678).
At this point, you should be logged in to a lab computer and have access to your Linux account. If you forgot your Linux account password, ask for it to be reset at Adams 211.
