[2012-MAR-22] Exam 2 solution


[2012-MAR-20] Working outside CSE labs

You can use the Oracle Virtual Desktop Client (OVDC), which let's you log in remotely to the CSE systems, as if you were sitting in a CSE SunRay lab. First visit:


Log in using your UBIT username and password. Visit this page,

or search for "Oracle Virtual Desktop Client".

Download the client. Run VPN if off campus, then run the OVDC. Set it up to connect to server dragonforce.cse.buffalo.edu; go to Settings->Network and set the MTU to 1406, for check both boxes in the "Compression" section.

Exit the settings, and click "connect". You should now get a log-in window just like on the SunRays in the lab.

[2012-MAR-20] VPN

To access various university and departmental services from off campus you need to run VPN. See UB Virtual Private Network (UBVPN) for more information.

Also, although I will be able to check my e-mail from time to time, do NOT expect typical reponse times. In fact, do not expect a response from my until I return and get a chance to catch up on backlogged e-mails.
