These are some instructions I've written up to get RUMAD working on your Mac running macOS Sierra or later. If the instructions below don't work for you, you're going to need to enter the following command every time you want to connect to
rumad.uprm.edu in Terminal:
ssh -oKexAlgorithms=+diffie-hellman-group1-sha1 -oHostKeyAlgorithms=+ssh-dss email@example.com
Using the previous command, your Mac should connect to
rumad.uprm.edu. If you need any help, my email is at the end of this page. Manually copy and paste the commands.
Finally, your Terminal window might look differently from mine. These instructions will still work.
Setting up the SSH directory
NOTEThe $ symbol indicates the command prompt of your Terminal. Everything that is after the $ symbol is a command. DO NOT include it in your commands.
Open a new Terminal window. Terminal is located in
Type the following command to create the SSH directory:

Then, change the permissions of the folder to be accessible by you only. Type the following command:
$ chmod 700 ~/.ssh
Afterwards write this command:
$ nano ~/.ssh/config
Your Terminal window will show a document. This document will likely be empty for you.
This document is called the
config file. Copy the following text:
Host rumad.uprm.edu KexAlgorithms +diffie-hellman-group1-sha1 HostKeyAlgorithms +ssh-dss
Go to the Terminal window that contains the document
config. Paste the copied text with the keyboard shortcut

Save your changes using the

Testing out the connection
rumad.uprm.edu using the following command:
$ ssh firstname.lastname@example.org
Press Return. If everything is working correctly, you should see a password prompt for the user
If this is the first time you're connecting to
rumad.uprm.eduyou'll see a message to accept the authenticity of its key fingerprint. Just type "
yes" and press Return.
estudiante does not have a password, press Return again.
If everything was done correctly, your Terminal will show the user menu for the Sistema Estudiantil Colegial.
