Login to ALICE from MAC OS

Logging in with a Mac requires no extra installation on your local machine.

  • Under “File”, open a new finder window. Navigate to the “Applications” folder, then the “Utilities” folder. Open a terminal window.
  • Edit your ~/.bash_profile to incorporate:
   export LC_ALL=en_US.UTF-8
   export LANG=en_US.UTF-8 


  • Open a new tab to make sure these settings are in effect (Shell -> New Tab).
  • Edit your ~/.ssh/config file and put in:
Host hpc1 
  HostName login1.alice.universiteitleiden.nl
  User <USERNAME>
  ProxyJump <USERNAME>@ssh-gw.alice.universiteitleiden.nl:22

(Replace <USERNAME> by your own ULCN account name.)

Now you can login to the ALICE login 1 node by typing on the command line:

ssh hpc1

All other settings are similar to the Linux login setup
