Below you will find information on the Computers available over the Internet from the ICM through ssh.

Most systems have GUEST access, but if you are interested in long term access you can request an account.

HOW-TO Connect

Once you have a login, you may connect to the host using:

ssh  -or-  ssh
Direct Menu
ssh ssh

Where host is the name of the host you wish to connect to (refer to the list below). This will connect you across a telnet bridge to the host. You will then be prompted to log in with the account you have been granted. The second example will log you into the MENU system which acts as a springboard to all available remote systems.

You can also access the MENU system in the browser at
