Connecting to Linstat from Outside the United States

While all computers are subject to regular attacks today, Linux servers draw particular attention. Most attacks originate outside the United States, while most SSCC members are in the United States. SSCC therefore blocks standard Secure Shell (ssh) connections to Linstat from outside the United States. This reduces the number of attacks Linstat is subjected to, but SSCC members can still connect to Linstat from anywhere in the world using one of the following easy methods:

You only need to use one of these four methods. Note that the Google Authenticator and key pair methods must be set up while you are connected to Linstat. If you will be traveling and want to use these methods, we suggest configuring them before you leave. Otherwise you'll need to connect using VPN or Winstat once to set them up.
