Remote access to GHPCC is available via the internet, however, if you have difficulty connecting from the internet, you may want to attempt connecting first to your individual campus Virtual Private Network (VPN) and then connecting to GHPCC. Please contact your local campus IT staff for information on obtaining a VPN account.

Use an SSH client to connect to ghpcc06.umassrc.org. If needed, accept the host key. Enter your username and password as provided by GHPCC staff.

There are many choices for SSH clients. Here are a few applications recommended for your use:

  • Linux
    • OpenSSH is provided by default. Open a terminal window and type:
$ ssh username@ghpcc06.umassrc.org
  • Mac OS X
    • OpenSSH is provided by default. Open a terminal window and type:

  • Windows (XP/7/8/10)
    • PuTTY
    • Cygwin provides an ssh client and X11 server for most Windows systems
