How do I log into Shell?

Solution

Prerequisites

Not sure what shell is? See Shell.

Before logging into Shell you need to make sure you have enabled shell access for your UO account. To learn how, see Enabling Shell Access.

Windows

Windows does not come with an SSH client that you can use to connect to shell.uoregon.edu with. You will first have to download and install one.

  1. Download an SSH client
  2. Connect to the host shell.uoregon.edu on the default port of 22
  3. Login using your Duck ID and password

Mac OS X

  1. Open the Terminal application (located in Applications > Utilities folder)
  2. In Terminal type: ssh DuckID@shell.uoregon.edu (replacing DuckID with your username)
  3. If you have never logged into shell before, you may be asked to confirm the fingerprint that identifies the server. Type yes to continue.
  4. Enter your DuckID password.
