SVE is the Serenity Valley Engineering Public Access Multics system.

To get an account, e-mail moc.liamg|orp.xinu.selrahc#moc.liamg|orp.xinu.selrahc with your preferred ID and level of access (user, developer, administrator, ?).

To access the system:

Telnet to,  port 6180 ("telnet 6180")
SSH to gro.sndkcud.scitlum-evs|evs#gro.sndkcud.scitlum-evs|evs,  port 6181, password sve ("ssh -p 6181 gro.sndkcud.scitlum-evs|evs#gro.sndkcud.scitlum-evs|evs")

Some Telnet clients work better if 'CRLF' is turned off.

You should see a HSLA line selector prompt like:

HSLA Port (d.h002,d.h003,d.h006)?

Enter one of the listed line names (eg "d.h002").
