     23== Get your Login and Host names ==
    2424In order to figure out your login name the best way is to use the [wiki:GAPI_AM_API_V3#Status status command] of the GENI AM API. Depending of which tool you used to reserve the resources you can get this information in different ways.

    2626==== Using Flack ====
    27 If you are using Flack for building your experiment then in order to get the login name you need to load your slice in Flack and press on the (i) icon that is next to the node.

    3130==== Using Omni ====
     31If you are using Omni, then you can run the `sliverstatus` command and get back a text output. If you search within that output you should find a field about the hostname and one about the login.
     32If you are trying to ssh to your hosts from the same machine that you used to reserve your hosts then you can use a script that comes with Omni and you can directly skip to [ this section].

    3334==== Other tools ====
     35If you used another tool to reserve your resources, then you should figure out how to get the output of the sliverstatus command. If you can't figure this out please send us an [mailto:help@geni.net email].
