Once you're connected to one of UCC's servers you'll want to start running things. You could open up an SSH session for every program you want to run, or you could use a program like screen.

To start using screen for the first time, type "screen". This will launch the program and give you a terminal window that won't disappear when you disconnect from ssh. If you disconnect from ssh and want to reattach the the screen session you were previously running, reopen ssh and type "screen -dR".
