Using Linux has never been so easy! Open OnDemand allows you to log into servers identical to Linstat using your browser and get a “desktop” graphical user interface like a regular computer. Connecting to OnDemand and Working With OnDemand have details to help you get started.
Multi-factor authentication (MFA) is required to access Linstat unless you are on Winstat or using the SSCC VPN (which already requires MFA). If you choose not to use VPN, you can still connect to linstat.ssc.wisc.edu which will automatically redirect you to our gateway where you can use MFA to log in. This also works for accessing our Linux file server (ftp.ssc.wisc.edu) .
Supporting Statistical Analysis for Research
The SSCC’s staff is here to answer your questions, help you use our services, and solve your computing problems. The SSCC Help Desk is your first point of contact whether you need help logging into Winstat, a fix for your computer, or statistical advice.
The SSCC provides powerful Windows and Linux servers with the most popular statistical software, plus a secure computing environment for working with HIPAA and other sensitive data.
The SSCC’s statistical consultants provide consulting and training for social science researchers on statistical and data science topics. They’ve also created an extensive statistical computing knowledge base.
If you’re taking a class that uses SSCC’s resources, you can use our computer lab or log in to servers from home. You can also get help using statistical software from our consultants. Instructors, start here to learn about our support for instruction, request accounts for your students, or sign up to use our computer classroom.
