I'm using gmail.com in mozilla's Firefox version 3; cannot seem to find ssh.

Asked by John Wagner on 2008-10-17

I'm trying to login in to my account at CalTech; according to their FAQ, "if you are running a linux system, go to the terminal, and type "ssh[yourusername]@login.cs.caltech.edu" ." Well, it certainly doesn't work on Ubuntu 8.04. I know that I'm ignorant, and a newbie, and fumbling. Can someone help? I've wasted my life programming, you see?

Thanks for any advice, and PgP won't do, by the way.

This question was expired because it remained in the 'Open' state without activity for the last 15 days.

Launchpad seems to be a great idea with no use whatsoever. It's appropriate
that you call the janitor, though, because he's faithful at sweeping
questions away, unanswered. It's great for cleanliness, and it teaches
self-reliance. All that stuff one hears about Canonical and the "Ubuntu
way" of helping each
other out is just bogus, isn't it? Well, I know enough now not to ask any
more questions, at least. I also think that photo on the distro paperback
of the three joyful youth dancing ring-around-the-rosy while inebriated is
in poor taste. I think it's a pretty good version of Linux, myself--better
than advertised in your own breezy literature. Cheers.

The ssh [yourusername]@login.cs.caltech.edu is not a Firefox command is a terminal command..

So please open a Terminal from the menu Applications → Accessories → Terminal and type:

ssh [yourusername]@login.cs.caltech.edu

substitute [yourusername] with your real user name assigned to you from caltech.edu

example:

ssh <email address hidden>

Hope this helps

Yeah, you solved my problem, and completely! Thanks, man, a million-fold. If there's anything I can ever do to help you, feel free to call on me. You were right to the point, and you got me there: right now, I'm logged in, and working on my programs without having to drive all the way out to Pasadena from Koreatown. Thanks so very much.
