Accounts
    You will have the opportunity to get an account on my machine which is helios.ececs.uc.edu. You can request an account from me by sending email to francojv2001@yahoo.com. Please include a desired account name in the email: it might be convenient to specify a desired account name which matches that of a machine you have access to. Alternatively, you can stop by my office to get an account.

Many of you will also have normal university or department accounts. However, note that unless you do something to protect it, all students and most faculty may have access to your files in those accounts.

Access:

From another unix machine that is connected to the internet, no matter where, to login to your helios account do this:

ssh <account-name>@helios.ececs.uc.edu

To copy files to helios do this:

scp <files> <account-name>@helios.ececs.uc.edu

To copy files from helios do this:

scp <account-name>@helios.ececs.uc.edu:<files> .

at the command prompt. In the last 10 years I have not heard of a unix box that did not have ssh and scp so you should be fine.

From a Windows machine that is connected to the internet, choose one of the following:

  1. If you have putty, open it and the rest is intuitive.
  2. If you have cygwin, start the cygwin server, get a shell and follow the unix instructions above.
  3. If ssh is installed as a gui (as it is on UC labs machines - accessible in the internet menu) open it and the rest is intuitive.

From a MAC that is connected to the internet open a shell and follow the unix instructions above. There are probably other ways to connect involving GUIs but you will have to find those on your own.
