As this is a DEISA Door Node, you can access the SP6 directly from your workstation using the address grid.sp6.cineca.it:2222, or from another DEISA platform using the address grid-deisa.sp6.cineca.it:2222.  Under special circumstances, ssh is also available. Your ssh public key is required, and the address is sp.sp6.cineca.it

If the SP6 is your Home Site, then the preferred method of interactive access is gsissh, as described above. Under special circumstances, ssh is also available. You will be issued a password and you will use the address sp.sp6.cineca.it.
