Ok, I'm very familiar with mathematical programming but not familiar at all with IT stuff. I am trying to access an SMP server and reset(or restart?) it. I have all the login info and command lines once i get there, but other than that I have NO idea what I'm doing. On top of that, I was recommended to use PuTTY on windows or linux. Problem is I'm on OSX 10.5.8 and don't know what to use. I assume I would use x11 and/or Terminal to do the same thing, but I have no experience at all. Would anyone mind giving me a basic tutorial on how to access and manipulate a server like this using a mac? What programs do I use, what commands, etc? If there is a good tutorial out there I'd love to read it, just haven't found anything on my own. Thanks!
