Access EWS Linux remotely with SSH

Remote access to the EWS Linux environment

The College of Engineering and the Engineering Workstations Labs (EWS) are committed to providing a secure computing environment. To achieve this goal, EWS has disabled any protocols that transmit clear text passwords. EWS users should use SSH and/or SFTP clients to connect to linux.ews.illinois.edu.

For connections from Windows machines, Engineering IT recommends using mobaxterm as your SSH client.   

SSH from Off-Campus

On May 30th, 2017, the campus Office for Privacy and Information Security (OPIS) implemented a campus firewall change to block off-campus SSH connections to on-campus resources. A VPN connection is now required. Machines that require an exception to this for teaching or research purposes can request one here.
