If you wish to connect to the HPC system from offsite you will need to connect to the UEA VPN service first i.e. and then follow normal ssh connection procedures (putty/terminal) to connect to the cluster. 

Further guidance about the UEA VPN service is available from the online wiki.


The HPC and linux environment is new to many users and may require a different method of working.  Please browse the site for information on how to use the cluster.

We offer to meet with all new HPC users, so that we can provide the necessary training to get started and enable your specific requirements.

We can provide further advice on a one-to-one or group basis, please email for further details.
