CCRMA Comet How To Connect
How To Connect
On this page, we explain how to connect to Satellite CCRMA over the Ethernet cable.
Mac OS X
If you are using Mac OS 10.6.3 through 10.8, you need to install XQuartz so that XWindows will work. (Prior versions (10.5+) have XWindows installed by default in the OS X Developer Tools, but if it is missing for you then first try downloading X11 from the same link.)
Go to System Preferences, select Network, and choose the Ethernet module. Write down your current settings in case you think that you might need them in the future. (For example, if you use Ethernet to connect to the Internet in your dormitory, you probably want to save these settings for when you go home.) Now change your Ethernet settings to the following:
IP Address: 192.168.105.105
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
The remaining items such as Router, DNS Server, and Search Domains can be left blank for now, and click the Apply button in the bottom right to apply the settings.
You will use the Terminal program to login to Satellite CCRMA over the Ethernet connection.
Now open up a window in Terminal. Your Satellite CCRMA kit should choose the IP address 192.168.105.106. To check that it is visible type the command ping 192.168.105.106, and see how fast the network response is. Once you are satisfied, hit Control-C to quit ping. Then, to finally login to Satellite CCRMA, type
ssh -XY firstname.lastname@example.org
The password should be temppwd.

Instructions for Ubuntu 10.04 Netbook Remix:
Run ifconfig in a terminal and look for your wired ethernet device. It will probably be called "eth0". Copy down the value next to HWaddr.
Go to "System" -> "Network Connections".
Under the "Wired" tab of the dialog that opens click "Add".
Set the "Connection name" to something logical, like CCRMA Satellite. Paste the value you copied from HWAddress in the "MAC address" box.
Click the "IPv4 Settings" tab. Change "Method" to "Manual". Next to "Addresses" click "Add". In the "Address" column type "192.168.105.105". In the "Netmask" column type "255.255.255.0". Click "Apply".
In the notification area on your desktop panel, click the NetworkManager Applet icon. Select the connection you just created. You now should be able to ssh into the board by typing ssh -XY email@example.com in a terminal. The password is temppwd
