CS 1301 Lab 2 – Introduction to UNIX Notes: Do not wait until the last minute to do this assignment in case you run into problems. If you find an error in the homework assignment, let a TA know immediately. Background: Chances are that as you read this, you are using a computer running either Windows or Mac OS. However, what about other types of computer operating systems? In this lab, you will get a chance to interact with computers running the UNIX operating system using a console. Though you may not know it, the server where you get your e-mail, the server providing the website from which you downloaded this file, and countless others on the GT campus all run UNIX or some derivative thereof. Another interesting fact that you may not know: Georgia Tech provides a place for you to place a website, again on a UNIX machine. If you want to know more in-depth info for UNIX, see the other document for this lab. However, if you want to just jump into it, keep reading. If you’ve used UNIX before, please do not be offended if we seem to be taking baby steps – this is intended for those new to this stuff. Your Mission, Should You Choose To Accept It (acceptance recommended) Connect to the Georgia Tech acme system and familiarize yourself with the UNIX console. Create a public_html directory and lu.txt, containing information about yourself from the GT Directory. Place a copy of the CoC logo (coc.gif) in your public Georgia Tech webspace. Note: No T-Square submission is needed for this lab! Continue reading to see how easily these goals may be accomplished! This message will *not* self-destruct in 10 seconds. Sorry to disappoint you, there. Some Basic Terminology SSH – This stands for “ S ecure SH ell.” It allows you to securely connect to a remote UNIX server and log in to a console interface, where you can manipulate files, directories, and programs. SCP – This is the S ecure C opy P rotocol. It allows you to connect to the server and upload/download files from it. Necessary Software Lab 2 CS 1301 – Page 1/6

Windows Users : The PuTTY SSH client is recommended for this lab. You can download it (it’s just a simple .exe file) from here: http://www.puttyssh.org/ You could also SecureCRT 5.1.4 if you desire. You may download it for free from OIT at https://software.oit.gatech.edu/request.php . For transferring files using SCP, we strongly recommend WinSCP. It allows you to copy files around using a simple, drag-and-drop interface. You can get it here: http://www.winscp.net/ (download the latest “Installation Package” on the download page). WinSCP is also available from http://software.oit.gatech.edu (though it is an older version). WinSCP will be especially useful in a future lab. More instructions on using these programs follow.
