One of the goals of STAT 598G is to help students gain basic familiarity with working in a Linux environment. Since our lab computers use windows, students will have to use ITAP software to log in to a linux account.
These instructions given below are adapted by those created by Hyukon Yun for the Fall 2010 semester. For Fall 2012 we will be working with the following ITaP machines
When you first log in to your unix account you will not see a unix prompt, but rather an ITAP program that requires you to read your responsibilities on an ITAP computer. Follow the instructions that you see in the terminal and then log in again. On your subsequent log-ins you will see a standard unix prompt.
The following instruction applies only to Windows machines.
