Linux / Mac SSH

Linux and Mac users should use the OpenSSH client which is already installed on your computer. Open a terminal session and run the following command to connect to Chinook:

$ ssh

replacing uausername with your UA username (e.g. jsmith2).

To enable graphical displays through an X Window, run the following command:

$ ssh -Y

Unlike Linux, Mac operating systems do not come with an X Window server pre-installed. If you want to display X Windows from Chinook, we recommend installing XQuartz on your Mac.
