LINUX COMPUTER ACCOUNTS
REMOTE ACCESS TO MATLAB AND TO YOUR LINUX COMPUTER ACCOUNT
 If you connect from home first you may need to download and install the Cisco AnyConnect Virtual Private Network
and establish a VPN connection for each session:
follow the instructions here.
 To access your Linux computer account remotely,
you can use FastX, a graphical Linux virtual desktop environment
remotely accessible in your web browser:
 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.
 https://virtualdesktop.uiowa.edu, a 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).
