Public Servers

The public servers are intended for any remote work, either from home or from non *nix machines. Please do not use the public workstations (i.e. ross -2, Rothberg or levy labs) for remote connection.

To connect from outside you can use rsh, ssh, telnet, or X (on some servers). And on some servers ftp for file transfer. See below for supported protocols.

Cluster Operating System Access rsh/ssh/telnet ftp X server Hosts Notes
river Linux 64bit all yes yes yes CPU time limited to 40 min
bagel FreeBSD all yes yes yes
humus FreeBSD phd yes yes yes


  • To connect to a "random" host in a cluster you can use the cluster name, e.g. rsh bmos instead of rsh bmos-03.
  • On FreeBSD machines your environment will most likely look different from the "normal" look (and some applications might not be installed).
  • For long/heavy processes, please use the designated clusters and not inferno, or bagel, as those are used by all students. If you need special access to a host please tell your advisor, or your course TA to contact the system.
