SSH (Secure Shell) applications allow you to connect to Colby’s CARS system and to colby0 via an encrypted connection. You should use SSH for terminal connections instead of telnet, and you should use SFTP for secure file transfer instead of FTP. Both Telnet and FTP will be phased out of use at Colby in the near future. You must first have appropriate permissions set to access these servers.

Please review the instructions below, based on your operating system, to create an SSH connection. If you have questions or problems with these instructions, contact the ITS Support Center at support@colby.edu or ext. 4222.
