Logging in

We recommend, for security reasons, to use ssh (Secure Shell) in order to login to the front end server. Your local system administrator should have set you up an account. A suitable default shell environment has been set up for you when we installed the software, including paths, in order that you can run the software straight away. Please be cautious about copying environment files (.login, .cshrc, etc) from another machine as this may override the default settings and render the system unusable for you (if this happens ask your system administrator to restore the default settings).
