SSH Access to ITTC Systems
Users accessing the ACF from outside Nichols hall will first need to SSH into ssh.ittc.ku.edu and then from there SSH to either login1.ittc.ku.edu or login2.ittc.ku.edu.
Custom SSH Port Settings
Users SSHing into ITTC systems need to use an alternate port (62) when connecting to ssh.ittc.ku.edu. There are two main ways to accomplish this task:
With Each SSH Command
Simply supply the -p 62 argument to ssh (and many other SSH based commands).
For example: ssh -p 62 email@example.com
With the .ssh/config File
A Host section can be setup in your .ssh/config file that will automatically set the correct connection options for SSHing to ITTC systems. For example, if your ITTC username was jayhawk, add the following to your .ssh/config file:
Host ittc ssh.ittc.ku.edu
With these lines in your .ssh/config file you can now SSH to ITTC using the command: ssh ittc
