Mac’s Terminal program
Mac OS comes with a command line program called Terminal. Search your Mac’s programs for “terminal”. At the terminal prompt type,
ssh -Y <yourSternNetID>@rnd.scrc.nyu.edu
ssh -Y <yourSternNetID>@vleda.scrc.nyu.edu
When prompted, enter your Stern password.
You should now be logged in and see a command line prompt from which you can enter Linux commands or run programs. For help with Linux see Linux Basics or www.linux.org/forums/beginner-tutorials.
