- Linux computer accounts will be made available on the Linux network in MLH (computer lab rooms B5 and 301). You can also use the NoMachine NX Client Windows software to access your Linux computer account remotely. To access the Linux network (linux.divms.uiowa.edu) from off campus, you are required to establish a VPN connection before connecting (follow these instructions to install the software required to establish such connections).
- Selected Unix commands.
- Class directory: /group/class/m_174. Group you belong to: m_174.
- If you do not know your password go to 303A MLH.
- Accounts for students who are not majoring in Computer Science, Mathematics, or Statistics and Actuarial Science will be deleted after the term has ended! Note the expiration date at the top of your Unix Account Information form.
- The directory for this class will be removed before the beginning of the next term! If there is anything in this directory that you would like to save, you must archive it to your own home directory.
