Access to the lab is described in the section on public access labs. In addition, the Linux machines may be accessesed via SSH after you have logged in to a CPU server.

E113 Lab

The E113 lab is a reservable lab. It contains 16 Linux computers named:

lin113-00
lin113-01
...
lin113-14
lin113-15

The machine lin113-00 is reserved for TA access if a TA is in the lab. At all other times, it is available to the students. However, it should only be used when all other machines are occupied as it requires special attention due to the fact that it is hooked up to the projector.

Access to the lab is described in the section on reservable labs. In addition, the Linux machines may be accessesed via SSH after you have logged in to a CPU server.

E115 Lab

The E115 lab is a reservable lab. It contains 24 windows computers named:

pc115-01
pc115-02
...
pc115-23
pc115-24

The machine pc115-17 is reserved for TA access if a TA is in the lab. At all other times, it is available to the students. However, it should only be used when all other machines are occupied as it requires special attention due to the fact that it is hooked up to the projector.

Access to the lab is described in the section on reservable labs.

E116 Lab

The E116 lab is a reservable lab. It contains 17 Linux computers named:

lin116-00
lin116-01
...
lin116-15
lin116-16

The machine lin116-00 is reserved for TA access if a TA is in the lab. At all other times, it is available to the students. However, it should only be used when all other machines are occupied as it requires special attention due to the fact that it is hooked up to the projector.

Access to the lab is described in the section on reservable labs. In addition, the Linux machines may be accessesed via SSH after you have logged in to a CPU server.

E313 Lab

The E313 lab is a special application lab. It consists of machines with high end graphics capabilities and is reserved for specific courses which deal in graphics. It contains 3 windows computers and 12 Linux computers named:

pc313-01
pc313-02
pc313-03

and

lin313-01
lin313-02
...
lin313-11
lin313-12

Access to the lab is described in the section on special application labs. Typically, it is reserved for the use of students taking graphics classes. Anyone else using the lab must obtain permission, either from the professors teaching the graphics courses, or from the system staff.

The Linux machines may be accessesed via SSH after you have logged in to a CPU server, but should only be used by graphics students with the permission of the professors teaching graphics courses. Abuse may result in loss of access to the labs.

The E313 lab may also be reserved in cases where the other reservable labs are not sufficient, provided it doesn't interfere with the graphics courses.

UNIX/Linux servers

The following machines are available for use as CPU servers.

Solaris SPARC

sun01

Linux (AMD 64)

thunder
storm

CISE CPU servers are available to all users to run jobs on, and to log in to from remote locations. They tend to be some of the fastest machines in the department and have the most memory. They are also very heavily used, so they may, or may not, be faster than other public machines.

Remote access is available using SSH.

Windows Servers

The following machines are available for use as terminal servers.

endeavor
enterprise

CISE terminal servers are available for Unix or Linux users who need to use windows programs.

Remote access is available using a remote desktop client such as rdesktop.

Public Access Labs

CISE public labs are available 24/7 to anyone who has a CISE account. Due to numerous security problems, labs are locked between 5PM and 7AM, and require a valid Gator 1 card to access them. Also, labs are monitored with security cameras.

After-hours access to computer lab is granted using enrollment information. This information comes from the College of Engineering who in turn works directly with the Registrar. Downloads of enrollment information are done as often as the College permits. At the beginning of the semester downloads are done weekly. Afterwards, downloads are only done by special requests. We apologize for any delay in granting lab access.

Public labs, and the computers in them, are not reservable, either for a class, or for individual use. Any instructor or TA with instructional needs should look into the the reservable labs. Locking the screen for extended periods of time is not allowed. Locking the screen should only be done for short periods (less than 15 minutes). If you will be away from the computer for longer than that, you should log out completely in order to allow others to access the computer.

Reservable Labs

CISE reservable labs may be reserved by CISE faculty members for use in their classes or for other applications which require a dedicated lab. Calendars are posted on all reservable labs listing times they are reserved. All students not directly involved in the class or project which has reserved the lab must logout of the computer and leave the lab during periods where the lab is reserved.

For more information on reserving a lab as well as links to calendars showing current reservations, see Reserving a Lab.

During periods where the labs are not reserved, they are available as a public access lab.

Special Application Labs

Some labs are not open for public use, but are reserved for specific classes or purposes. Only students in the appropriate classes will be granted access to these labs, and will require a valid Gator 1 card to enter.

Remote Access

Most UNIX and Linux computers are available for remote login using the SSH protocol. Be aware however, that any that seriously degrades or prevents use of machines by other users is not acceptable. Please use self-restraint, or your programs will be terminated.

Some Windows workstations and the Windows remote servers are available to connect to using a remote desktop client such as rdesktop.

For details on connecting to CISE machines from home or other locations, refer to the Secure Remote Access page.
