2. Select File and then Open Connection
3. A new connection menu appears. Type in the host name of "i5.nyu.edu".
4. Click connect.

Use your Net ID when you are prompted for a login. If this is the first time you are logging in, your password is the same as your NYUHome account password. If you forgot your password, you can reset it by visiting this webpage:


If you continue to have problems login into your i5.nyu.edu account, please inform your instructor asap.
