 +If you are a first time CS network user (you'​ve never logged in before), it is best to reset your temporary password (as provided to you in an email from the Dept when your account was setup) on the CS Department portal, THEN login via NX. To do so, open a terminal window and type ''​%%ssh <​userid>​@portal.cs.virginia.edu%%''​ (for example, ''​%%ssh pgh5a@portal.cs.virginia.edu%%''​).
