To use kibo, you will need to have a NU NetID and often, the Northwestern VPN. Instructions are below.

Getting access to Kibo

The first step will be getting a NU NetID. You should contact [Aaron Shaw] for this. If you already have a NU NetID (e.g. you are a Northwestern student), you can skip this step.

Once you have a NetID, you should contact to let Aaron know along with the NetID. He will contact the Northwestern IT folks and this will enable your account to access the Kibo system.

Logging into Kibo (remotely)

If you're off the NU campus, you should use the Northwestern VPN, which is GlobalConnect currently. Instructions for the VPN are [[here]]. Once you have a NU NetID and the NU VPN:

  1. Connect to Northwestern University using the VPN (GlobalConnect)
  2. Open your terminal and ssh
  3. The first time you connect it will ask you if you are sure you want to continue connecting. Type 'yes' and enter.
  4. It will prompt you for's password. Enter your NU NetID password and you should now be connected.
