The Login Service provides a set of Linux machines, the Login Pool, to which members of the U-M community can connect remotely. Reach these machines by connecting to
login.itd.umich.edu using SSH (secure shell). You use this single machine name as you log in, and your connection will be routed to whichever machine is available at that moment.
The Login Service is part of the standard computing services. Most U-M faculty, staff, and students are subscribed to the standard computing services automatically.
