The Common Access server
The name of the new Common Access server is: ssh.sissa.it
This new server is configured for some simple operations only and is reachable using different names (ssh.sissa.it, sftp.sissa.it) depending on your account type.
All our users are able to use the SFTP service, but only the authorized users (generally permanent scientific staff, long-term scientific staff and students) are able to use the interactive SSH access (shell).
SFTP access: sftp.sissa.it
All the users are able to use SFTP service to transfer files to/from their own home & common scratch directories through the sftp.sissa.it server.
Using this service, the prefix
/u on the home directory path is omitted:
/sector/username instead of /u/sector/username
Interactive SSH access: ssh.sissa.it
The authorized users, that login on ssh.sissa.it, are able to:
- use alpine/mutt (to read and send e-mails);
- manage their own files and directories (copy, delete, edit with vi or nano) on their own home & common scratch directories.
Internal workstations are reacheable (from outside SISSA network) through the VPN service ONLY.
All kinds of graphic tools (gv, acroread, firefox, …) and development tools (emacs, latex, gcc, …) are not available.
There is no software to display:
- graphic files (like .jpg, .tiff, .png) or
- graphic contents of document files (like .pdf, .doc, .xls).
