This page explains how to manage the basics of your account

Changing your password

Change your password by logging into taurus ( See Connecting to LUDD's servers) and issuing the following command:

passwd

You will be prompted for your old password, and asked to confirm your new one.

Changing your shell

Shell can be changed from https://cortex.ludd.ltu.se/index2.php

Forwarding your mail

Log in to any of our servers ( See Connecting to LUDD's servers) and run the following commands:

cd ~
echo "[mail-address]" > .forward

where [mail-address] is the mailaddress you want to forward TO.

For example, if I want to forward mail to the address bogus@bogusville.com, I would have run

cd ~
echo "bogus@bogusville.com" > .forward
