From Linux computer

VPN client installing

Install openconnect: For Ubuntu (CLI and GUI)

sudo apt install openconnect
sudo apt install network-manager-openconnect network-manager-openconnect-gnome

Start VPN client either from command line:

sudo openconnect vpn.vuw.ac.nz

or via GUI - create a new VPN connection in Network Manager settings as "Cisco AnyConnect or openconnect" and "vpn.vuw.ac.nz" gateway and activate it.

Use your university staff login and password for authentication.

  4. sshfs (to mount server folder over SSH): sudo apt install sshfs

MacOS essential tools

  1. SSH client: should be installed as part of base MacOS
  2. rsync client: should be installed as part of base MacOS

To university

To high performance cluster

After VPN connection established you may connect to any SGEES/ARC high performance clusters. The only protocol supported is SSH. You can see the list of our HPC's here: List of SGEES computing facilities

Using SSH for text mode access

Either run it from command line:

ssh username@sgees018.geo.vuw.ac.nz

Or use GUI tool: Cyberduck or WinSCP in MacOS and Windows, or "Go->Connect to Server" in MacOS In Linux it varies: Nautilus file manager has interface similar to MacOS ("Go->Connect to Server"), whereas Dolphin has a direct support for SFTP, so the syntax would be:


Using x2Go client for GUI
