There are several SSH-capable clients available for Windows, Mac, and UNIX/Linux machines. NERSC does not support or recommend any particular client.

Please do not execute long-running applications on the login nodes. Instead, use a batch script and submit it so that the applications run on the Genepool compute nodes.
