Frequently Asked Questions

If you can't find what you're looking for on this page, be sure to check the Keck HOW-TOs before e-mailing

How do I get an account on Keck workstations?

Please see this page. The accounts are distributed by kerberos, so an account on one machine will work on all machines.

How can I access the Keck workstations remotely?

The only way to remotely login to the Keck workstations is to use secure shell (ssh). For example: ssh

If you are using MS Windows you can download either MobaXterm or putty ssh clients. If you are using Linux or MacOS then ssh is already installed as a part of the OpenSSH package.

Please note that direct ssh logins to Keck Center computers are allowed only from a local Urey Hall network subnet or the UCSD VPN.

Does e-mail work on any of these machines?

Outgoing email only.

How do I change my password?

If you are logged into one of the Keck workstations execute command passwd to change your password.

What software is available?

See the available software page for a list of the software that is currently installed and some links to the software home pages.

What should I do to get a particular piece of software installed?

If it's free software, just e-mail and let us know what you need and we'll try to get it installed.

What is my disk quota on Keck Center computers?

Every user has 10GB home directory quota.

If your project temporarily requires bigger disk space allocation please email keck-help with a request to increase your quota,
