You can access the Lab Linux stations from any computer with Internet access.
To do so you must first connect to your ISP (Internet Service Provider).
Using one of the lab Linux machines, the command “lab_machines” will return the list of available Linux machines.
The required connection method is SSH version 2( Secure Shell ) which does not transmit your password in the clear across the internet, as telnet and ftp do. SSH includes sftp ( Secure File Transfer Protocol ) and scp ( Secure Copy )
If your are running a recent Linux, Unix or Mac system, ssh is probably available on your system.
