HOWTO Securely Login to the Unix Server for Windows/Apple Users using PuTTY


Download PuTTY

1. Go to the PuTTY web page and click on the "Download" link at the top of the page.
2. Scroll down to the Windows section and download putty.exe. Save it to your desktop.

Logging into the Unix Server with PuTTY

1. Double click on the putty.exe icon to start the application.
2. Under "Host Name (or IP address)" type: ezekiel.engr.csufresno.edu
3. Under "Connection Type" click on the SSH button to use encryption.
4. Click "Open" to open a secure shell login session to the Unix server.
5. Type in your username and password to complete the login process.

The first time you login, the program will ask if you wish to accept a public key. Just click the "Yes" button, as it is the only time you will be asked the question.

In the future, if you wish to save time, you can save your default login configuration. To do this, after typing in the "Host Name" and clicking on the SSH "Connection Type" button, simply type "ezekiel.engr.csufresno.edu" under "Saved Sessions" and click on the "Save" button. From then on, just double click on the triton profile whenever you wish to logon to the server.


1.  Make sure you are hooked up to the internet.
2.  Open a Terminal Window.
3.  Type:  ssh -lece71k[XX] ezekiel.engr.csufresno.edu
        Replace [XX] with your login number.
