ssh stuffs


dear all,

my university subscribed to on-line scientific journals - I can read and download papers from my university account. Now, I would like to do that from my home: I can connect to my account through SSH but I do not know how to continue ... How can I use the connection of my university from home ?

many thanks,
Alek

Not sure I follow. But If I got this correct you ssh into a university server to view journals. Are these on the server? if they are on the server that you ssh into then you can use the scp command.

IE
Code:
#Usage
scp <file path>/<filename> username@remotehost:<directory path>/<filename>

scp /home/jstephens84/article.pdf someuser@remotessh.community.com:/home/someuser
that would copy the article.pdf from the local server to a remote server.

If you need to use a command line browser then you should see if the university has installed lynx. Just type
Code:
lynx
at the ssh prompt and (hopefully) a page will appear to guide you on how to download what you want.

You also can install a VNC server on your university account and then login remotely to a graphical user interface using a local VNC client. You would then basically using the complete remote system with everything that it has available.
