Connecting to the Marie Curie Cluster

Windows

In general, most users will want to connect to the HPC facilities through a graphical user interface.  Information on how to set this up can be found at "Graphical Connection to the HPC System".

If you wish to connect to the HPC system using only a command-line interface, you will be required to use SSH (using port 22). A free windows based software package that provides SSH connection is "PuTTy", which can be freely downloaded at http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/download.html, or those using a CQU (MOE) machine, can install the software via Start -> Control Panel -> run advertise programs and select "PuTTy" as the application to install.  Then simply connect to the hosts marie.cqu.edu.au or curie.cqu.edu.au and use your CQUniversity Username and Password to gain access.

Please note that if you are using a CQ University's Windows Computer, you can install all of the required HPC software (including Putty, Strudel, turboVNC and notepad++ ) by going to Start Menu -> CQUni -> Software Centre, Search and find the 'CQU High Performance Computing (HPC)' package to install.  This will place the HPC software in the Start Menu (Start Menu -> CQUni -> Research Support -> High Performance Computing)

Linux

In general, most users will want to connect to the HPC facilities through a graphical user interface.  Information on how to set this up can be found at "Graphical Connection to the HPC System".

If you wish to connect to the HPC system using only a command-line interface using SSH, simply start a terminal session and issue the following command ssh [Your CQUniversity username]@marie.cqu.edu.au or curie.cqu.edu.au, in which you will then be prompted the enter you password, which will be your CQUniversity password.
