Guidelines

  • Students may apply for an account on the web server for academic purposes.
  • The web disk space available will be limited to 1 GB per student.
  • If the account is in-active for more than one year then the account will be closed.
  • This account also enables you to use Linux in the E&E undergraduate laboratories.

How to apply

  1. Send an e-mail form to Prof. W J Perold requesting a web account.
  2. Prof. W J Perold will then forward the e-mail to me, if approved.
