New SSH Server

On Monday 1st March we will replace the SSH server named “bruegel” which hosts and with a new machine named “auriga“.

All that will happen is that at about 09:00 on Monday we will change the DNS alias to point to the new machine. This change can take some time to propagate so we will not switch off access to bruegel immediately. It will be left running as normal until 12:00 Friday 5th March. This should allow sufficient time for users logged in to finish their existing sessions and move to the new server.

The IP address for the service will change from to, your SSH client may warn you about this change and request verification. For reference the new SHA256 host key fingerprints are:

  • RSA – aviY6lcxhKE0H7PofATPrxHA+j7W6WOp+aO2sTXRDWQ
  • ECDSA – PAvZ5s2rxWV/IyI8+sBkbZmP3iCffArdUt/IdhgBrS0
  • ED25519 – WicgoLcme2IviSSQ+WUHLqDBT/VI5e05NWS/qW8g9lE

More information regarding the SSH service can be found on our help pages. If you encounter any problems accessing the SSH service please contact us via the Support Form.
