Mac and Linux users

Just open a terminal and type "python" !

Login to a vu server

From home you should be able to login on the following servers:

  • galjas.few.vu.nl - 8 core Linux 64 bit 32GB RAM
  • kits.few.vu.nl - 4 core Linux 64 bit 16GB RAM

In windows you can install the free program PuTTY to login to the servers, and run your scripts. Use your own (VUnet ID) login, or the guest account that you used at the practical.

To edit your scripts there are a couple of options:

  • edit your scripts at your local computer, and upload the file to the server using WinSCP
  • use an inline editor such as nano or pico in PuTTY
