What is login.msi.umn.edu?

Many MSI systems require users to first login to a bastion server, login.msi.umn.edu. The purpose of this server is to secure connections to MSI and protect our systems from outside intrusion. To login users will require a valid MSI account and an SSH client. If you have a Windows computer, you can refer to these instructions to configure an SSH client; on Linux and Mac systems there is typically an SSH client already installed, available from the shell by typing ssh [msiusername]@login.msi.umn.edu. Once on the login host, refer to the remote access documentation for details on logging into other MSI resources.
