Use these instructions to connect to both classified and unclassified HPC machines at LANL.
ssh -l lanl_userid red-wtrw.lanl.gov -t ssh ci-fe.lanl.gov
You should then be logged into the front end machine without the need for a password.
After logging in to a classified machine at either site, and authenticating with kinit -f, you can use optimized Tri-lab file transfer scripts, including file transfer to storage systems. These scripts use hsi, htar and pftp protocols. For details see Tri-lab high bandwidth file transfers over SecureNet.
LANL's unclassified machines reside on either the turquoise or the yellow network, and login procedures are different for each network..
ssh -l lanl_userid ihpc-gate1.lanl.gov ssh ct-fe1
When prompted for a password on the Cielito front end node, use your LANL cryptocard password.
To reach the LANL yellow network, you will need a LANL Z-number, CRYPTOCard, and the ability to access the LANL Web portal at https://ssl-portal.lanl.gov. After connecting to the LANL Web portal, enter your LANL Z-number and passcode from LANL CRYPTOCard. For first time accesses, you will be led through a series of prompts for downloading LANL software. After completing this successfully, you will be connected to the portal opening page, which allows you to launch a terminal session, check LANL e-mail, and view LANL internal Web pages, as shown below.
To connect to Cielito, supply the appropriate login/front-end node name, or just click on the "Cielito" terminal session icon/link.
