Start-up Guide

The assignments for this course are done on our Linux servers.

Every student has received a personal user-id like pcp16xxx, and a password in their grade information on OnCourse. In order to login, you will need an ssh client. On Linux and OS-X you will already have such a client (the ssh command on the terminal) but on Windows you will need to download and install something like MobaXterm. This will allow you to connect to our server, edit files, and run commands. For commands which produce graphical output you will also need X-forwarding enabled. With the ssh command this means that you will need to add the -X option when opening the connection, with MobaXterm this is enabled automatically.

One of the following server addresses can be used to connect

  • co9.ics.ele.tue.nl
  • co10.ics.ele.tue.nl
  • co13.ics.ele.tue.nl
  • co14.ics.ele.tue.nl

Environment settings for the default shell (/bin/bash) are already configured when you receive your account.
