SSH programs give you the ability to connect to and interact with the Unix hosts at Deakin to use some services such as computer programming environments and online databases. They use encryption when communicating with the host to ensure information such as your password is kept secure.
Hosts which are accessible to all Deakin users include interactive.deakin.edu.au and library.deakin.edu.au (the latter does not require your username or password). The client software below should already include these hosts pre-configured. For security reasons, all Deakin interactive hosts require SSH and no longer support telnet.
Mac users : Mac OS X includes SSH built-in. Open Terminal (found in your Utilities folder) and type "man ssh" for information.
