LINUX COMPUTER ACCOUNTS

Linux computer accounts are available on the Linux network in MLH
(computer lab rooms B5 and 301). Set up a
CLAS Linux Account here
by just entering your hawkid and passphrase. If doing it from home,
you must first download and install the Cisco AnyConnect Virtual Private Network
and establish a VPN connection:
follow the instructions here.

You can find
local online Linux Help
for questions/problems you may have about Linux.

Selected Unix commands.
 If you have problems with your Linux account go to 303A MLH.
 These accounts expire, see the
account expiration policy. If there is anything in this directory
that you would like to save, you must archive it to your own home directory.
REMOTE ACCESS TO MATLAB AND TO YOUR LINUX COMPUTER ACCOUNT
 A way to access your access your Linux computer account remotely
from a browser is to go to http://fastx.divms.uiowa.edu, a Linux virtual desktop:
 Login with your Hawkid username/password
 Click "Start a new session" (make sure your popup blocker doesn't block)
 Click "Bookmarks"
 Click "starxfce4 or startkde" depending on which desktop you want to
 Click "Start"
More details can be found
here.
You can make your browser window larger and then click in the lower left
hand corner, the box of nine dots that make a square, then click on the
arrow head with arrows on both ends to "maximize" the Linux desktop.
 If you have a Windows computer at home you can use the
NoMachine NX Client Windows software to
access your Linux computer account remotely
using the address linux.divms.uiowa.edu (Use the instructions
Configuring the NoMachine NX client on Mac OS X to configure NoMachine, even if your machine is not a Mac,
because the other instructions for Windows and Windows 7 there are obsolete).
But first you must download and install the Cisco AnyConnect Virtual Private Network
and establish a VPN connection for each session:
follow the instructions here.
 Another possibility to access your access your Linux computer account remotely
from a browser is to go to https://linux.divms.uiowa.edu:3443, a Linux virtual desktop.
 http://view.divms.uiowa.edu, a Windows virtual desktop
where you can access MATLAB in a Windows environment with your web browser.
 https://virtualdesktop.uiowa.edu, another Windows virtual desktop
where you can access MATLAB in a Windows environment with your web browser (does not seem to work if your machine is a Linux machine).
