Remote Access Servers

Courant has a couple systems that a user can use to access a shell from outside of the CIMS network.  Both system require the use of ssh to connect, but provide slightly different services.

General Access Nodes

Note: CS Minors Accounts see other related section.

For general access into the courant network, you'll need to connect using ssh to:

Please do not use access.cims.nyu.edu for cpu-intensive jobs or course work.

Once connected to this machine you can then run ssh to connect to any of the compute servers available to CIMS users.

Graphical Application Access Nodes

Note: CS Minors Accounts see other related section.

For general applications that require graphical interfaces (i.e. mathematica, matlab, xmaple, tecplot, etc.) you can connect using ssh to:

Note: You will need an X windows manager (i.e. cygwin/X11) and you will need to enable X Forwarding on your local machine to run remote graphical applications.

Once connected to this machine you can then run any of the graphical applications available in our software repository.

 

CS Minors Accounts (Only CS Minors)

For general access into the courant network, you'll need to connect using ssh to:

Note: None of the other CIMS compute servers will work.
