## Homework

- ** Due 1/22, 1/25 ** :
WebWork assignment
.

- ** Due Friday 1/26 **:
Create a web site that shows your name the name of our class (and nothing else) and send me an email to
ns46@dana.ucc.nau.edu. The email should have your name and the url to the website you created. I am going to
ask you to put your programming project files on this website in separate directories.
The simplest way to do this is to create an index.html in the directory /www/account_name on sgd. You need
to create a file named
.htaccess
to make directory lists available. The created website is available at http://www.cens.nau.edu/~account_name.

Links

- University Unix machine through secure global desktop (sgd). You may have
problems with certificate removal.
You can try to use the
removal program. You need
administrator access. Call 523-8084 or email help@cens.nau.edu if you have problems connecting.

- Secure shell (ssh) for windows.
Connect to coruscant.cens.nau.edu or unix.cens.nau.edu.

- Xming, X window server running on Windows.
You can use this with ssh to open remote graphical applications on Unix. You need to turn on tunneling
in ssh. Xming is installed in our lab.

- Fedora Linux site. Having Linux is the best option on
the long run if you need to do serious programming work.

- Cygwin A Linux-like environment for Windows. Includes
the C++ compiler g++, the typesetting language TeX, ghostview, gnuplot, bash. It's free. Installs
as a windows directory.
