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) .
