    55When you reserve nodes through the GENI AM API, you can login to your nodes using [ `ssh`]. You get access to reserved hosts only through [ ssh keys]. This page will give you some useful tips about how to login to your nodes.

     9 2. your '''login name'''
     10 3. your '''ssh key'''

     16All linux and Mac distributions come with a built-in ssh client, just open a Terminal and type ssh, you should get the usage for the ssh command.
     18==== Windows OS ====
