Changing your password

You can change your password using passwd command run from terminal app (Applications->Terminal). The change will apply on all workstations immediately.

Home directory

Each student has a home directory on server k333stu1 with at least 2GB of disk space. For a temporary storage of a larger volume of data you can use /local/temporary/ directory: the data are accessible from the current workstation only and are erased once a day. Data in your home directory are accessible from all workstations and are not erased. You can access your data from a distant machine using the scp protocol connecting to For Windows, you can use e.g. Winscp app.

Virtual Windows 7

After login to linux, you can run virtual Windows 7 using menu item Applications->K13133 SW->Windows 7 32-bit. It takes about 1 minute to load Windows. You can login to Windows with the same name and password as used for Linux.

Your Linux home directory is accessible from Windows as a network drive \K333STU1\USERNAME and it is mapped as drive R: by default. All the data you want to preserve shall be stored there; your virtual Windows home directory (C:\Users\username) is not persistent and will be deleted after logout.

After finishing your work in virtual Windows, you need to switch off the virtual machine (Shutdown).
