If you need simple terminal access then connections to the server can be made using SSH.
We recommend using PuTTY as the SSH client - this can be downloaded from:


Once installed on your PC the set-up is simple. Open PuTTY and enter the following options:

  • Host Name: your username, followed by
    (for example - To connect to our alternative login server, 'cbrglogin2', simply replace 'cbrglogin1' with 'cbrglogin2' (eg,
  • Port: 22
  • Connection Type: SSH
  • Saved Sessions: Add a name for this session to be used as a shortcut in the future, eg 'cbrglogin1'
  • Click Save


  • then click Open - when prompted to accept the host key, click: Yes.
    A connection with the server will be established and you will be prompted for your password.


On your next use of PuTTY the settings are already saved. To open a connection to the server:

  • click the shortcut to cbrglogin1 (or to our alternative login server, 'cbrglogin2')
  • click Load
  • click Open

[Alternatively, simply double-clicking the shortcut to cbrglogin1 will also open the connection!]
