A Note On Accounts
The department has been gradually shifting towards making more use of centrally managed services which are accessed using a MyCarletonOne account. All desktop pc’s owned and managed by the department are now accessed using a MyCarletonOne account. Math department computer accounts are now only used to access a Math department mailbox or the Turing Linux server. Graduate lab Linux desktop machines and the ottawa and toronto compute servers require an additional Graduate lab account.
Here you will find technical information for the faculty, including:
HP3393 and HP4385 Teaching Labs
Linux Remote Access
You have access to the Linux based server turing.math.carleton.ca using your Math department account. Turing provides file storage space and optionally a personal website.
