Program designers have a tendency to think of the users as idiots who need to be controlled.

Projects

Testing machines

The projects must compile on the ms8xx (xx=01..25) machines !

Firstly, you need to create an account through the registration page.

Then you can connect to the machines thanks to SSH with the following command:

  • ssh login@ms8xx.montefiore.ulg.ac.be
where you need to replace login by your actual login and xx by a machine number (xx=01..25). SSH will open a terminal on the remote machine. For windows user, the PuTTY utility will mimic SSH behaviour (an illustrated step-by-step tutorial can be found here).

Several solutions are available to ship source code to and from the ms8xx machines.

  • FileZilla: a graphic, cross-plateform FTP client (an illustrated step-by-step tutorial can be found here)
  • scp: a command line utility to transfert file from/to remote hosts (it works much like the cp command)
  • rsync: a command line utility to synchronize remote files
  • sshfs: a command line utility to "mount" a remote directory
Those utilities might need some configuration/getting-used-to. A few hints to help you out:
  • Read the man page (so you can say you have)
  • Try the help flags -h, --help (you might even get useful information)
  • Google your questions or get a succinct tutorial (others have stumbled on the same difficulties, let them help you)
  • Script the data transferts, compilation steps, testing suite (human memory is the most expensive)

Oh, and be sure to chmod your home folder to prevent others from messing with your files.
