Khoury Systems supports CentOS 7 for lab, faculty, and grad desktops/virtual machines.
Holders of valid Khoury accounts may connect to the following public machines using ssh:
- Any of the virtual Khoury Lab Linux machines which are hosted by Systems in West Village H. The host names are vdi-linux-[030-050].ccs.neu.edu. These machines are behind the NEU firewall and require the Northeastern VPN for remote access, or they can be accessed if connected to NUwave.
- Example: ssh -A -t email@example.com ssh -A firstname.lastname@example.org
Khoury Majors and students enrolled in Khoury courses may use our public lab in West Village H 102. Faculty, graduate students, and staff may have dedicated Linux machines on their desks.
login and back-end services
login.khoury.northeastern.edu shell server, as well as various other public, Khoury-facing, or back-end services (including our mail services, and Wiki services, and assorted behind-the-scenes programs needed to keep everything else functioning) are also built on Khoury Linux, either running directly on Dell server-class hardware, or as virtual machines atop Xen, VMware Infrastructure, or Microsoft Hyper-V, in turn running on similar server-class hardware.
