#26947 Shell services access question

Jacob Moorman
Sean Coates

I can't ssh into shell.sourceforge.net Howcome?

I tried an OLD account I have (scoates) and this newly-
created account (seanecoates). I can log into
http://sf.net but no SSH.

I keep getting Permission Denied.
I'm calling SSH properly.
I'm sure the password is correct (I'm using it on the
www site).

    Your support request has reported issues in accessing the
    SourceForge.net project shell servers or compile farm services.
    SourceForge.net provides hosting services to Open Source software
    development projects. A number of the services we provide,
    including shell server access and compile farm access, are
    restricted to members of projects hosted on SourceForge.net. As
    you do not appear to be a member of any projects on
    SourceForge.net, you will not be able to access these services at
    this time.

    If you have a project you wish to register, please do so
    ('Register new project' in the left navbar of the SourceForge.net
    site). If you wish to join an existing project, please contact
    the project administrator of that project. Should you have
    further questions or concerns regarding this matter, please
    re-open this support request and add a comment.

    Thank you,
