Math Computing Wiki
We now have a wiki for computing, which is intended to be complementary to this page.
Mail System Has Moved to Calmail Service
Important items related to computing in the Math department first appear as brief announcements on the "Message of the Day" (/etc/motd) displayed when you log in to one of our Unix servers. There is also a low volume mailing list for Computer System announcements. You can subscribe by going to the Compannounce web page.

- The computing support pages are under review now. The new revision is to be finished by end of February. Old news page can be found here.
For hardware printer problems ONLY, (including low toner), use firstname.lastname@example.org. Please do not copy more than one list on your email. If you happen to send to the wrong list, it will be redirected by someone on the list.
Unix server support for faculty, visitors, and graduate students is provided by LSCR Unix support team (primary Igor Savine).
Desktop support for Windows and Mac OS X for faculty and staff is provided by the LSCR desktop support team (primary Frank Naughton).
There are about 150 computers in the Math department. Due to recent staff/funding cuts, the LSCR Unix team provides full support for Unix servers, but limited support for Unix desktops.
Here is the list of main Unix servers:
|login.math.berkeley.edu||primary SSH login server||CentOS 5||a.k.a. panda.math.berkeley.edu|
|beyonce.math.berkeley.edu||thin client server||CentOS 5||accessible from computer lab 744|
|keira.math.berkeley.edu||SSH and thin client server||CentOS 5||accessible from anywhere|
|math.berkeley.edu||primary web server||FreeBSD 7.3||Math home page|
|blue1.math.berkeley.edu||SSH server||Solaris 9||deprecated, out of support|
|blue2.math.berkeley.edu||Samba and AFP file server||FreeBSD 7.3||deprecated|
|blue3.math.berkeley.edu||SSH server||Solaris 9||deprecated, out of support|
|blue4.math.berkeley.edu||print server||FreeBSD 7.3||CUPS server|
There are five public printers available:
|Queue Name||Maker & Model||Location||Comment|
|958_large||Canon iR7095||958 Evans||high performance printer/copier/scanner|
|958_small||Canon iR6570||958 Evans||medium performance printer/copier/scanner|
|1002||HP LaserJet 5200||1002 Evans||low performance printer|
|838||HP LaserJet 4350||838 Evans||low performance printer|
|744||HP LaserJet 4350||computer lab 744 Evans||low performance printer|
See our printing information page for details.
A large number of free packages are installed on our Unix systems, and we have licensed a couple of commercial packages, namely, MATLAB and Maple. We used to have working packages of Mathematica and Magma in the past, but not anymore.
Data Backup and Restore
User data is backed up to tape on nightly basis.

Computer Policy and Security
Warning about Phishing
Phishing is an attempt to get you to reveal confidential information by pretending to be a legitimate organization with whom you do business. There is a news article about this on the CalMail site. Remember -- no legitimate organization will ever ask you for passwords, social security numbers, credit card numbers, or any sensitive information via email. DO NOT reply to any such email.
