The cluster login nodes can be accessed through Secure Shell from any machine on the Rice campus network. You will need an active NetID and password in order to login (unless otherwise instructed).
If you need off-campus access, please visit our Off-Campus Access Guide.
To login to the system from a Linux or Unix machine, use the ssh command:
To transfer files into the cluster from a Linux or Unix machine, use the scp command:
For more information about using Secure Shell, please see our Using SSH to Login and Copy Files Guide.
Once you are logged in to the system, you are logged into one of several login nodes as shown in the diagram below. These nodes are intended for users to compile software, prepare data files, and submit jobs to the job queue. They are not intended for running compute jobs. Please run all compute jobs in one of the job queues described later in this document.
