Link to section 'SSH' of 'BoilerKey' SSH

  • SSH to the cluster as usual.
  • When asked for a password, type the usual BoilerKey sequence (<PIN,push> or <PIN,code>) you would use in any other Purdue two-factor places.

Link to section 'Thinlinc' of 'BoilerKey' Thinlinc

  • Web interface: Works with either <PIN,push> or <PIN,code> as you would expect for BoilerKey.

  • The native client:
    1. Does NOT work with <PIN,code>.
    2. Works with <PIN,push> through Duo on your phone (but will ask twice because of the way Thinlinc works internally).
    3. Works with key-based authentication.
