==Linux Remote Access==
You can remote acess into campus Linux servers listed at http://it.eng.iastate.edu/remote.html.  A recommended software tool is NX Client by NoMachine, which can be downloaded at http://www.nomachine.com/download.php. Download the free client for Windows as well as the nxfonts addons. After installing the client, you will go through a wizard process at first launch. Give any name for "Session" and fill in the remote server address for "Host".  You may leave everything as default.  Lastly, login using your ISU netid and password.
