First of all, you will need to install an ssh server on your VM before you can ssh to it. You will probably need to do this with a VNC Viewer. When your in your VM, you can install OpenSSH with:

  apt-get install openssh-server

Access from other Redbrick servers

Note your VM's IP address from the VM Management page. To login simply ssh to that IP address, with your VM user/pass (not your Redbrick login details).

  ssh username@IP_ADDRESS

Access from an external machine

You will need to setup a tunnel to get to your VM, if you're accessing from outside Redbrick. To do this, type:

  ssh -L 1337:YOUR_VM_IP_ADDRESS:22 username@login.redbrick.dcu.ie

This binds port 5900 on your own computer to daniel (the server with the VMs). So to connect to your VM:

  ssh 127.0.0.1 -p 1337
