Connecting to the Lab Machines Remotely

You may want to connect remotely to the lab machine at times when it is inconvenient to work in the lab. If you have a Windows machine, you will want to download Putty.

If you have a Mac, you can connect directly to the lab machines using the following command:

ssh username@colossus.it.mtu.edu


ssh username@guardian.it.mtu.edu

where username is your username. The terminal will then ask for your password. Type in your Michigan Tech password (the same one you use for Canvas) and press enter. NOTE: YOUR PASSWORD WILL NOT SHOW UP WHILE YOU ARE TYPING IT. THIS IS NORMAL.

You should now have access to your lab machine.
