ECF Unix & Windows

ECF Unix

The 185 Linux workstations are called p1.ecf -> p185.ecf. They are used for general-purpose computing. The operating system is Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.

  • 8 workstations in SF1106 (Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6, Dell Optiplex 9010)
  • 60 workstations in SF1012 (Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6, Dell Optiplex 9020)
  • 117 workstations in SF1013 (Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6, Dell Optiplex 9010)

These systems are also accessible remotely over the Internet.

The machine called remote.ecf (running Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6) handles ssh connections to ecf.utoronto.ca. This machine’s primary purpose is for remote access for lightweight jobs such as mail reading.

ECF PC Windows

The 183 Windows 10 workstations are used for general-purpose computing. These computing facilities are provided to all students for academic use, and, as such students are advised to refrain from using the lab computers for sharing files (ex. peer-to-peer networks).

These systems are installed in the following four labs:

  • 63 workstations in GB144 (MS Windows 10, Dell Optiplex 9010)
  • 58 workstations in GB150 (MS Windows 10, Dell Optiplex 9020)
  • 50 workstations in WB255 (MS Windows 10, Dell Optiplex 9020)
  • 12 workstations in SF1106 (MS Windows 10, Dell Optiplex 9010)

The computers in the departmental labs are also connected to the ECFPC-Windows network and servers and many have identical image to the ECFPC computer labs mentioned above. Please check with your department for locations and usage restrictions. Many of these labs are only accessible to students in the specific department.

In addition to the labs mentioned above, students can remotely get access to their home folder through the Remote ECFPC Workstations.
