Login (ssh)

Use ssh to get a text-based secure login to DICE computers from your Linux machine. It's even more secure when you use Kerberos.

Remote desktop

You can use the remote desktop service from Linux.

Web integration

You can make your web browser automatically sign you in to Informatics web sites when you visit them. This uses Kerberos.

Your Informatics files (AFS)

You can use the DICE filesystem (AFS) directly from your Linux computer. This uses Kerberos.

How to make backups

If you keep University files on your computer, you should make regular backup copies.
