Connecting from a Windows PC
Secure Shell/SSH is the recommended method for connecting to Unix servers from Windows.
X-Win32 is an x-terminal emulator with mouse control which allows access to windows style editors (xemacs, nedit), PC-like emulations of SAS®, GCG sequence displays in color and access to other x-terminal based packages. SSH is built into X-Win32. Use is recommended for users on campus who are connected to the VCU ethernet.
- First establish a VCU Web VPN session to securely connect to the VCU network
- If you need assistance with establishing a VPN connection contact the VCU IT Support Center.
- Then run SSH or X-Win32 to login to the server.
