Once you have a login, you may connect to the host using:

ssh host@tty.livingcomputers.org

Where host is the name of the host you wish to connect to (refer to the list below). This will connect you across a telnet bridge to the host. You will then be prompted to log in with the account you have been granted.

Status of these systems may be checked at http://tty.livingcomputers.org/

ASCII The Living Computer Museum is home to the world's only operating CDC 65001). Originally built in 1967 then retired to storage in 1989, restoration on the LCM's CDC 6500 began in 20132). Today, the system is made available for use by interested parties through the LCM's Request a Login page. Principle engineer Bruce Sherry continues the ongoing work of restoration along with others, managing the vast array of unique hardware and software required to bring the CDC 6500 experience to a whole new generation.

Using the CDC 6500 is, for many, a new and daunting experience. A survival guide has been created that covers the basics of the operating system, editors, and programming environments available on the LCM's CDC 6500.
