You want to remotely connect to CSIL/Linux from home/laptop outside of the lab.
How to do it:
Note: If you are not a Computer Science student you can replace csil.cs.ucsb.edu with linux01.engr.ucsb.edu to linux28.engr.ucsb.edu instead.
Linux or Mac
If you are using Linux or Mac, open Terminal and type in the following:
and replace "yourengineeringusername" with your actual engineering username and xx with a number between 01 and 48. If it asks you a question about fingerprints, simply type yes and press enter. Next, you will enter your password and that's it!
