Using SSH/SFTP client to access Unix homedir with SSH from anywhere:

Download and install (if you dont have “ SSH Secure Shell” already installed) SSHSecureShellClient-latest.exe from http://www.cs.technion.ac.il/software/SSHSecureShellClient-3.2.9.exe

  • Start SSH Secure Shell and click on Quick Connect.
  • Enter “Host Name:” CSA.cs.technion.ac.il (for Seggel-staff) , or CSD.cs.technion.ac.il CSM.cs.technion.ac.il (for TA), and your Unix User Name.

Port should be 22, Authentication Method should be Password.

Click on Connect, and Yes to accept Host key.

Enter your Unix password and login.

Save the settings by entering the name “CS Unix login” to Add Profile, so that next time you can select it from “Profiles” menu.

Now that you are logged in, you can open the SFTP window in “Windows” menu, “New File Transfer”. This will open a new window with your local Windows files on the left and CS unix homedir files on the right.

You can upload and download files from one to the other.

In Unix

Perform:

ssh login-name@servername

After login you are in your home directory:

Perform:

pwd

you should see:

/home_ta/login-name /* for CSM users

/home_sg/login-name /* for CSA users

to see all files perform:

ls

to see all files including hidden files perform:

ls -la

to navigate through the home directory tree use the command: cd

For more info about commands cd and ls use “man cd” and man ls”
