unix help needed (postgreSQL)
i need to access my university's database and see my tables that i created in a lab exercise we had. we're learning sql and we created some basic tables today.i just finished installing postgreSQL, which is what we'll be using for the rest of the semester,but i don't know what command i should use to try to connect to their server
i tried doing
ssh <server name>
but it asked for a password and when i entered it i got denied entry
am i using the right command or not?

for help type "man <command>" in your command line... for example "man ssh" will give you details about how to use it.
the most probable answer for your problem is that you are logging into a secured server meaning you need a log in name and password. by default ssh uses whatever the account name is on the computer you are signing in from as your log in name. so an easy way to use a different log in name is:
it will ask for you password and you just type it in.
hope this helps.

`man psql` will help you.
You can use it to access your local DB or a remote one if the remote allows that.
If you manage to login on the remote server with ssh you can use psql there. Note that the passswords for login and database access may be different.
You could take a look at pgadmin3, too:
