Connecting to Sapelo2

Access to Sapelo2 requires an active MyID and password, and two-factor authentication with Archpass Duo. For more details of Archpass Duo, please refer to archpass_duo .

Access to the Sapelo2 is through secure shell (ssh) to the host sapelo2.gacrc.uga.edu . If you have a local system that runs an X Window client or server, you can run X applications remotely.

To connect via ssh, you must have an ssh software and a connection to the UGA campus network. An ssh software is included in recent releases of Unix based operating systems (including Linux and Mac OS X). An SSH Secure Shell Utility is available for Windows on the UGA Sitesoft page (you will need to enter your UGA myID and password to download the software).

Open a connection to Sapelo2 on campus

Examples of usage on Unix/Linux/MacOSX

To open a connection to Sapelo2, first open a terminal and at the command prompt type

ssh UGAMyID@sapelo2.gacrc.uga.edu

Duo two-factor login for UGAMyID

Enter a passcode or select one of the following options:

 1. Duo Push to XXX-XXX-4304
 2. Phone call to XXX-XXX-4304
 3. SMS passcodes to XXX-XXX-4304

Passcode or option (1-3): 

or

ssh -X UGAMyID@sapelo2.gacrc.uga.edu

where UGAMyID is your UGA MyID. The -X option might be necessary to allow X windows applications running on the new cluster to be forwarded to your local machine. If your username on your local system is the same as your UGA MyID, you can simply type

ssh sapelo2.gacrc.uga.edu

Examples of usage on Windows Please refer to below on "log in to teach via SSH Secure Shell on Windows."

Open a connection to Sapelo2 from off-campus

VPN is needed to connect to Sapelo2 from off-campus (outside the UGA main campus).

For connecting from off-campus, please first connect to the UGA VPN and then connect to sapelo2.gacrc.uga.edu. Information on how to use the VPN is available at UGA_VPN.

To run X Window applications remotely on your local machine

If you have a local machine that runs an X Window client or server, you can forward X Window applications running on the new cluster to your local machine. Recent releases of Unix based operating systems (including Linux) come with an X windows client. For Mac OS X, please install XQuartz. For Windows OS, a free X windows server is Xming. More information on how to install Xming is available on the GACRC FAQ page.

Your ssh may be configured to allow you to run X Window application on your local machine automatically. If it does not, try including the -X flag when connecting to the new cluster (ssh -X UGAMyID@sapelo2.gacrc.uga.edu).

Now you can issue commands to start up X applications on sapelo2.gacrc.uga.edu, such as xterm.

If you plan to run resource consuming X Window applications, such as graphics programs, etc, please use the queueing system to get a command prompt on an interactive node. Information on how to run interactive jobs on the new cluster is at the Running Jobs on Sapelo2 page.
