As of 8/19/2010, all SSH from outside of ECE will have to be tunneled through OIT's VPN solution (http://anyc.vpn.gatech.edu)
If you are unfamiliar with the VPN service, please read the FAQ describing Georgia Tech's VPN service.
Information about connecting to OIT's SSL ("AnyConnect") VPN is available on OIT's FAQ site.
When you are done with your session, remember to disconnect from the AnyConnect VPN service.
