SSH Clients

Windows 10, macOS and Linux come with SSH clients by default.

Their usage is described here. Usually, these clients suffice most use cases.

 

Direct access to bastion via the command line is also available from different clients offering more support or features, or working on mobile operating systems. The following list is only a selection of available clients:

  • Web Client: Only for the case that you don't have a chance to use a local client we offer this service. Be aware that the terminal emulation is limited, so special character support, esc sequenzes and menu driven software may not work as expected. https://bastion.desy.de/ssh/(clicking on the link will open a new browser window)
