The ISG operates a large number of workstations running Linux, Mac OS X and Windows. We call them Managed Workstations. You need a physics account to use them. Your files are automatically on our fileservers and backed up on a regular basis. Please also note the usage policy.
Two public rooms are equipped with Linux workstations:
In the room HPV F 7.1 you'll find 12 computers running Linux and a wide range of applications like mail clients, word processors, TeX and scientific applications. These computers are free for public use within the usage policy while they're not being used for exercises. Xymon overview, usage and load of the students workstations.
A second room HIT F 21 is reserved for exercises and must be ordered over the Raumbewirtschaftung. It is equipped with 13 machines and allows access to the public and ETH WLAN networks. Xymon overview (under LTSP seminar)
In HCI D 267 there are 40 Linux workstations managed by ID services.
You can access a complete Windows Desktop from Linux with rdesktop:
rdesktop -d ad -g 1280x1024 -z -P rdpor
xfreerdp /f /bpp:24 /d:ad /v:phd-wints1.ethz.ch /u:$USER +fonts
