Using Terminal to write programs, not allowing me to access the university's servers?
Hey guys I have a couple questions. I took my first lab for my Computer Science class. We're getting into writing code and getting used to a Unix system.
Their computers are Windows 7 OS based: So we used the programs PuTTy, which the TA let us know that the equivalent would be Terminal in Mac.
Using PuTTy we accessed the university servers, and it prompted us to write in the server we're going to use (cse01.cse.unt.edu). PuTTy then brought up the command line, further prompted me to type in my login, followed by password.
In Terminal, I ran into a speed bump. The TA informed us on Mac, Terminal is PuTTy's equivalent. At this point, I'm unsure as to how I provide my login name to the university servers ... the screenshot should provide a better visual example.
(Also an additional, slightly less complicated, question, I like to change my preferences to the Homebrew theme, but it doesn't seem to want to save my preferences and reverts back to basic black and white, default theme. Anyone know how to save my preferences in Terminal?)

Unless your OS X username was the same as the username provided for use on the university's systems, you can't SSH without providing the username.
Then you'll be prompted to enter your password.
I'd look into setting up a shared key so you have less to type, but don't worry about that for now.
If you choose vi(m) for an editor, print something like this:

ssh, not terminal
Perhaps a bit nit-picking, but some of find this to be an important difference.
The program you use to acces the university servers is ssh.
You start the program on OSX from terminal (which happens to be another program).
In windows, the ssh function is not builtin so you need to add some program.
On OSX it is not needed, but if you whish to you can get the program JellyFiSSH instead of using ssh directly.

If that doesn't work, I'd probably delete the Terminal .plist file.
