Accessing ECS Computers

There are various ways to access Engineering Computing Services (ECS) computers. The method that we recommend is by using SSH, SFTP or Putty. Telnet and FTP are turned off on all ECS computers. To download SSH or Putty refer to SSH for Windows or SSH for Mac page. This page also provides you with instruction in using SSH.
