The IDUN cluster has two login nodes:

  • idun-login1.hpc.ntnu.no
  • idun-login2.hpc.ntnu.no

Users can log in as follows:

# Login using idun-login1 node:
$ ssh <username>@idun-login1.hpc.ntnu.no

# Login using idun-login2 node
$ ssh <username>@idun-login2.hpc.ntnu.no

Please replace <username> with your NTNU user name. Windows users will need an SSH client installed on their machine, see e.g. PuTTY or "Xming X Server for Windows". (NB! With PuTTY you will not get any feedback when typing password. Write the password and than Enter button)

Please refrain from performing computations on the login nodes. These nodes are only meant for file management, compilation, access to compute resources, etc.

X11 forwarding is necessary to display editor windows (gvim, emacs, nedit, etc.) or similar on your desktop. To enable X11 forwarding, log in with the ssh -X or -Y options enabled

$ ssh -X <username>@idun-login1.hpc.ntnu.no
