    Hi, I need to get software that'll allow me to connect to my school's server. I normally use SSH on my desktop but now I got a PB. is there anything out there that you can recommend?

    Well I hear SSH is pretty good...

    Seriously, there are dozens out there, some with graphical front ends, others more traditional style. Just Google for 'ssh mac os x' and try out some of them.

    Go to Applications > Utilites > Terminal

    In the app, type ssh user@server.domain where user would be your login name. It will then prompt you for your password and you're SSH'd in it. :D

    You can try the IP address of the target machine, too. You might have some name resolution problems. If the IP doesn't work, you have a little bit of tweaking to do. Is your firewall turned on?

    ssh -l [your-login] [server-name]

    When in doubt, use man.

    $ man ssh
