Access to the front-end nodes is provided through the secure shell (ssh) protocol. SSH supports a variety of use cases, including terminal emulation, X11 forwarding, and file transfer.

Most POSIX-like operating systems (including Mac OS X) provide command-line ssh clients. PuTTY is a popular implementation for the Windows operating system.

ssh <username>@[i|g]login.ibex.kaust.edu.sa

SSH can be used to transfer files between your local environment and the Supercomputing Laboratory. For example, the sftp command provides an interface similar to a traditional FTP client.

sftp <username>@[i|g]login.ibex.kaust.edu.sa 

Mounting a Remote filesystem locally using sshfs

SSHFS allows any user to remotely mount their Shaheen home directory onto a local workstation through an ssh connection.

mkdir -p ~/ibex &amp;&amp; sshfs $USER@ilogin.ibex.kaust.edu.sa: ~/ibex

Instructions for using sshfs on a Linux workstation are available at here.

SSHFS can be installed on OS X using MacPorts.
