CSE Password Questions
You will be prompted with a few screens that discuss accepting the security certificate. Once you have accepted all of these, this will bring you to the CSE Password Change Web site on an encrypted connection. From here, you can select to change your password. This Web site will update all password tokens, and the new password will take effect immediately. (Remember that your CSE password is not associated with your Taylor University (IT) password.)
2. Can I make my CSE password to be the same as my Taylor University (IT) password?
While it is not advisable, it would be possible for you to change your CSE password to be the same as your IT password via the CSE Password Change Web site.
CSE Userspace Questions
1. What is my CSE userspace?
It is the place where you can store files on our servers that only you can access.
2. How do I access my CSE user space from a lab machine?
Check out the instructions on the CSE Userspace wiki page.
3. How much disk quota do I have on my CSE user space?
Quotas are determined based on what courses you are enrolled in. More information is available on the Quotas page.
4. What will happen if I go over my quota?
You will receive a message from the servers and not be able to write to your user space until it is back under the limit.
5. How can I find out how much I have left on my quota?
On Windows (on a lab machine) open “My Computer” in Windows Explorer, right click on your X drive, and select properties. Alternatively, you may go to the Start menu, and click CSE Quota and Messages. On Linux: type “quota” in a Terminal window.
6. How can I get my quota enlarged?
You can submit a request to email@example.com, including your CSE username and the reasons why you need a larger quota.
7. How do I remotely login to my CSE user space?
Check out the Connecting to your CSE Userspaces page on the CSE Wiki.
9. How do I access my computer from the labs?
The following instructions depend on your operating system:
• On Windows (“Windows Sharing” enabled): To connect to your computer on the IT network, you will need your IP address. If you cannot retrieve this number from the dungeon, you must do it while sitting at your computer in the residence hall. To do so, go the the start menu on your personal computer and click ‘run.’ Type the command ‘cmd’ in the box and press enter. A window will popup on your screen. In that new window type ‘ipconfig.’ This will return a listing of numbers, one of which says ‘IP Address.’ From the dungeon, use this number to connect to your computer just as you would from any machine on the IT network, only using the IP Address instead of your computer name. For example, instead of typing \\mymachine in the My Computer address bar, you would type something like \\10.4.224.102. When the password box appears, type in your Taylor username and password.
• On Linux, Mac OS X (Remote Login enabled): If you are running Linux in your dorm room, you can ssh to your computer from any of the machines in the dungeon if you know your IP address and you have SSH enabled on your computer.
10. How can I find out what my IP Address is?
On Linux: type “ifconfig” in a Terminal. On Windows 2000, XP: type “ipconfig” from a command prompt. On Windows 98, ME: type “winipcfg” from a command prompt. On Windows (GUI), right click on “Network Neighborhood.” Click on “Properties” in the resulting menu. Single left click on “Local Area Network.” Down in the lower left-hand corner, a box will appear that will contain the current IP address.
11. How do I connect to my Taylor PNF or Taylor PWF?
Check out instructions on the Connecting to other accounts wiki page.
CSE Workgroup Questions
1. What is my CSE workgroup space?
It is a place where people who are part of a workgroup can store files that can be accessed by all members of the group.
2. How do I access my CSE workgroup space?
See Workgroups on the CSE Wiki.
Euler Labs and Late Pass Questions
1. What are the Lab Hours?
Monday–Saturday: 7:00 a.m.–11:00 p.m. (2:00 AM with Late Pass)
Note: Labs are closed for chapel
2. What is the CSE Late Pass List?
All computer science & engineering students will have their Taylor ID card put on the late list so that they can access labs after normal hours. Normally, the labs are closed during non-business hours (except if a lab supervisor is on duty); however, if you are on the Late List, you may remain in the labs until 2 a.m. when Campus Safety locks up.
CSE Email Questions
1. What is my CSE email address?
Your CSE email address looks like “firstname.lastname@example.org.” Username is your CSE username, NOT your Taylor username. By default, all e-mail sent to this account will be forwarded to your @taylor.edu email account.
2. How do I change the default forwarding of my CSE email account?
To change where your e-mail is being forwarded, open the file “.forward” in your user space. The e-mail address in that file is the location where the e-mail will be forwarded. Change that address and then save the file.
3. How do I keep my CSE e-mail from being forwarded to another account?
Delete the “.forward” file in your user space.
