Step 3 - Setting up access to SDS

Print Friendly

First, if you have not already done so, verify that you have changed your initial password , as per  Step 2. You will use the password you just changed when logging onto the SDS.

Using SSH not allowed

The SDS is a controlled-access environment. SSH/SCP access is not allowed. If you need to upload data or programs, please ask the relevant data provider (see the "Requesting account" page for contacts).

Using NX

To logon to the SDS, you will be required to use an NX-based remote desktop (no other access is allowed). The Nomachine NX client is free to use.

Full install

If you do not already have NX installed, follow these instructions:

  1. Install Nomachine Player Version 4 or 5 (latest).
  2. Once you have NX installed, you need to configure a "session". We have prepared a pre-configured NX session config file:

    download pre-configured NX config file

  3. You should unzip it. The file contained within, called 'SDSx.nxs', should be imported into the Nomachine Player application.
  4. You can now open the "Nomachine Client", and should see a sessions called 'SDSx'. Open that, and when prompted for a password, use the password previously created.
