Direct SSH access to Argo is restricted to on-campus network connections. To connect directly to Argo from off-campus, please download and install the VPN client.
After login, you will see the following information scroll on the screen:
Please take note of the information in the MOTD. System downtime, node availability, and much more is displayed there.
By default, your login shell is bash. If you want a different login shell (csh, for example), send email to firstname.lastname@example.org requesting the change; the standard UNIX change shell command, chsh, will not make the alteration. Login information including the name of your shell is not kept on Argo; it's saved somewhere else, a location that you can't access.
