How to SSH into the Linux Lab
X11 forwarding over SSH using Cygwin


Secure Shell (SSH) is a network protocol and the name of the program that implements it for remote command-line access.

You can use SSH to remotely login to the Linux Lab and Big Data Lab virtual machines. To do this on a Windows computer, you will need to use Cygwin. If you are on a Mac, SSH is already installed so you just need to open Terminal.
