Connecting to CS Unix/Linux Servers

The UMass Lowell Computer Science Department allows connectivity to its servers via secure mechanisms only.

Telnet, FTP and non-secure pop/imap (e-mail) connection requests to the CS servers will be refused.

All CS servers allow connectivity via the secure shell protocol for command-line access. To open up a 'terminal' session to a CS server, use a 'secure shell' (ssh) client instead of 'telnet'.

To transfer files to and from the CS servers, use the 'scp' or 'sftp' utility.

Please note that the software needed to make these connections is already installed and configured for use in the Olsen Computer Science labs.

The primary LINUX server is called 'cs.uml.edu'. You will be notified if additional systems will be used for particular class assignments.
