slogin server upgrade

As there have been no reports of problems with the testing slogin server we plan to swap the DNS pointer over the weekend spanning the end of February and the start of March at which point the old instances will be available for a short time as slogin-old.

If you use the slogin service but have not tested the new instance, please try slogin-new before the changeover to check things work.

PuTTY users should ensure that they are using PuTTY 0.64 or later.

Anyone unable seeing messages such as “no matching mac found: client hmac-md5,hmac-sha1,umac-64@openssh.com,hmac-ripem d160,hmac-ripemd160@openssh.com,hmac-sha1-96,hmac-md5-96 server hmac-sha2-512-etm@openssh.com,hmac-sha2-256-etm@openssh.com,hmac-ripemd160-etm@ openssh.com,umac-128-etm@openssh.com,hmac-sha2-512,hmac-sha2-256” should upgrade to a more recent ssh client. If one is not available, please contact sys-admin, and try connecting instead to slogin-oldssh.cl.cam.ac.uk.

The OTPW server slogin-otpw has been using this instance since August 2014 without any problem reports.
