LCSEE Ubuntu Linux Shell and Software Servers

The LCSEE Shell and Software Servers provide many applications and development environments. Several courses require the use of the shell servers for writing and compiling code. The servers are accessible from outside of the WVU network providing a means for faculty, staff, and students to access shell applications remotely. All shell access is done via SSH (secure shell.)

The shell servers also provide a means to copy files to/from your temporary shell workspaces. You can connect to these servers a couple of different ways. All file transfer mechanisms use the SCP/SFTP regardless of the application.

Find more information on the Shell Servers services page.

Additional instructions, such as those for transferring files and running remote X applications, can be found in the Shell Servers section of our FAQ.
