Network Remote Access (from outside SISSA)
Access Server & users home/main directories
- SISSA main cluster users home directories are centrally stored on a file server. These directories are reachable outside SISSA using a Secure Shell remote terminal connection (SSH) on ssh.sissa.it. The access server ssh.sissa.it is configured for some simple operations only. Please read the new Common Access Server page for more information.
There are no scientific SWs, compilers or libraries on ssh.sissa.it.
To run your programs, you have to use your workstation or HPC resources.
Users home directories are shared on all Sector workstations, which are assigned to users by the Sector computer responsible.
- Local scratch areas: on their linux workstations the users can login, run programs and use local file system - generally /scratch - (which are never backupped) -. You can find more information on LOCAL SCRATCH area on your linux workstation page.
- About access to scratch areas from outside SISSA network please read the The common SCRATCH area reachable page.
