Bastion Usage Help

The bastion service allows you to access the internal DESY network in a secure way. In most cases you can use a client on your local computer or smartphone. See Clients.

Please use whenever possible these local clients. Only if you have no other chance we offer a web based client which connects you to the bastion host. Be aware that the terminal emulation is limited, so special character support, esc sequenzes and menu driven software may not work as expected.

You shoudn't use bastion for daily work or computations. bastion.desy.de should only be used to connect to your service or server in the desy network, to connect for example via ssh to a host you can type
ssh host.desy.de

Please read also the security recommendation!
