Procedures on How to Log into the COE Linux gateway

  • The COE Linux gateway for terminal-based logins is gateway.coe.neu.edu.
  • You must be connected to the NU GlobalProtect VPN if you are off-campus.
  • In order to remotely log in, you need to SSH into gateway.coe.neu.edu as below:
   ssh -l username gateway.coe.neu.edu  ....> enter your coe username and password and you are logged in.
Either from a Mac terminal or from [[MobaXTerm]]on windows
you ssh to gateway.coe.neu.edu.
use your COE credentials which are different from your NU credentials.
If you need help with your COE credentials please email help@coe.neu.edu
or drop by the Computer Center on the 2nd floor of the Snell Engineering Building
  • If you are not familiar with unix here are some commands that will come in handy:
 pwd -----> this will show you the "present working directory"
 ls ------> this is a listing of your current directory
 cd -----> this will "change directory"
  • If you need further help on this, please send email to help@coe.neu.edu.

Linux graphics

If you need a Linux login with graphics, you have two options.

  • You can log in to the Gateway as above, and use X11 remote graphics.
  • You can use the Linux pool in the VLAB, see the VLAB page for details on how to connect.
