A new way to access the NGS

The NGS member site RAL, is trialling a new system that allows users to login to grid resources using any SSH client. They are currently inviting users to come along and have a play!

In a nutshell, all you need to do is to create a MyProxy credential (easily done, with the MyProxy Upload Tool) and then use virtually any SSH client (such as Putty, WinSCP or Nautilus) to login to with the username and password to your MyProxy credential. It's a very simple way to get connected to a grid resource.

Further details available here are available on the NGS wiki.
