How do I logon to Redbrick
If you're using Windows the best way is to logon is by using a program called "PuTTy". Putty is already
installed on most of the computers on campus in DCU. It can be found by clicking Start -> All Programs ->
Tools & Utilities -> PuTTy & WinSCP -> PuTTy. If putty is already installed on your machine skip to the image
and read the text underneath it. Otherwise, follow these 2 easy steps:
From here it's easy! Just click the button that says "Redbrick" in the bottom left corner
(or type: redbrick.dcu.ie into the "host name" part.) You'll be asked for your username and then your
password. If you have entered your username wrong just reopen putty and click the redbrick button
On a Mac(OSX)
You can use the terminal found through: Applications -> Utilities -> Terminal.
Once you've done that type: "ssh firstname.lastname@example.org" and enter your password when prompted.
Open up a terminal and type: "ssh email@example.com" and enter your password when prompted.
If you have any problems/queries regarding Redbrick please email: firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll
get back to you ASAP. :)
