The School of Computer Science has a Linux network available for all SCS students, faculty and staff.
Because of low demand the Linux hosts are not available. You can access your Linux homedir and web directory via the external access host. If you are interested in using the SCS linux network please contact the SCS Tech Staff and let us know that it is a valuable service!
You can access the SCS Linux network using the external access host:
The SCS Linux servers have the following available:
- you have 1 GB of server disk space available in your home directory
- you can set up a personal SCS website
If you require more omicron servers, you can contact the SCS Tech Staff and request more servers.
If you are enrolled in an SCS course, you can create an SCS Linux Account using the school’s account management system:
The SCS Linux Network is only accessible from within Carleton. You can access the Linux network if you are:
- Physically on campus and logged into the Carleton network
- Using the Carleton VPN
