How do I request that someone else be allowed to log in to my server?

A list of usernames for which login is already enabled can be found in /etc/uow_allowed_users.txt.

To request login be enabled for a username raise a call via the IT Services Helpdesk with the following information

  • The name of the server.
  • The full name(s) and username(s) of the people you want to be able to log in.
  • Whether you want any of the people to be limited to establishing an SSH Tunnel (e.g. if you only want them to be able to connect for remote database access) or SFTP connection (e.g. if you want them to be able to copy files/to from the server, but not get a shell session).

Please note:

  • You must provide both full names and usernames. Typos in usernames are easy to make. Many full names are not unique within University membership.
