Please look up your account name, password and your preferred login machine on the handout.

You might want to add the the switch -XY to ssh to enable X-Forwarding to your local client machine.

Linux and OSX come with a command-line ssh client. X-Forwarding might need some configuration for OSX.
Windows is not equipped with an ssh client, you might want to use PuTTY ( ).

Copying files can be done on the command line using scp, e.g.:
scp localfile

If your local client is equipped with an AFS client, you can access it using:
ls -l /afs/
