    Hi Michael,

    Thanks for writing in. While you can't open a separate Terminal window on the same billing project cloud environment while RStudio is running, RStudio has a built-in Terminal that is functionally equal to the Terra terminal (which is actually a Jupyter terminal). Would you be able to utilize the Terminal built into RStudio? Or does this pose any particular challenges for you?

    Kind regards,

    Jason

    Thanks!

    Hi Mike,

    Glad to hear! Unfortunately, Terra policy is set up in such a way that sshing to nodes directly is not allowed, due to security concerns. If you have any further questions about this or anything else, please let me know and I'll be happy to follow up with our engineers.

    Kind regards,

    Jason
