Please don’t hesitate to introduce yourself to us! 2 Connecting to CAEN Linux Machines 2.1 CAEN? CAEN manages many of the computers used by the College of Engineering, and all of the projects in this course will be graded on a CAEN Linux machine. This means you’ll need to do your final testing and submitting from one to ensure we are able to run your code properly. If you don’t already have a CAEN account, make your way to the CAEN Hotline in room 1315 of the Duderstadt Center (in the middle area behind the circulation desk). You should do this very soon so that everything gets created and enabled with lots of time left for you to work on the first project. You can find a map of CAEN labs here: http://www.engin.umich.edu/ caen/computers/map.html . They are ubiquitous on North, and can be found in Angell Hall, School of Education Building, and Shapiro Undergraduate Library on Central. 2.2 SSH A Secure SHell (SSH) client can be used to get command-line access to CAEN machines. Windows The de facto SSH client, PuTTY, can be downloaded from http: //www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/ ~ sgtatham/putty/ . Open it, and just type the hostname you want to log in to. PuTTY will open a terminal window and prompt you for your username and password. OS X Open Terminal.app (or some other terminal program if you wish), and just run $ ssh [email protected] and you will be prompted for your password. 1 Linux Open a terminal (specific procedure varies by distributions; On Red Hat, it’s in the Applications menu, and you can also right-click on the desktop; On Ubuntu, it’s in the Accessories sub-menu of the Applications menu) and run $ ssh [email protected] and you will be prompted for your password....
