Indien u gebruikt maakt van zowel PC's in de [[Terminalkamers|pc-onderwijszalen]] als een beheerde PC met Linux op uw werkplek is het raadzaam te overwegen om uw werkplek PC ook een upgrade naar Ubuntu 16.04 te laten geven.

If you are using Linux PC's in [[Terminalkamers|computer labs]] as well as a managed Linux PC in your office, we advise you to consider upgrading your office PC to Ubuntu 16.04 as well. Running Ubuntu 12.04 or 14.04 in your office
 
on a managed PC and using an Ubuntu 16.04 PC in the [[Terminalkamers|computer labs]] will result in problems.

=== [Exchange account/mail-adres Voornaam.Achternaam&#64;ru.nl voor FNWI-medewerkers per 1 augustus][Exchange account/mail-address Givenname.Surname&#64;ru.nl for FNWI staff from August 1] ===
 
<itemTags>medewerkers</itemTags>
 
[nl]
 
Met ingang van 1 augustus krijgen alle FNWI-medewerkers die nog geen account hebben in
 
[http://www.ru.nl/ict/medewerkers/mail-agenda/ Exchange (de RU-centrale mail- en agendavoorziening)]
 
zo'n account en daarmee een mail-adres erbij, van de vorm: Voornaam.Achternaam@ru.nl. Voor wie
 
al een Exchange-account heeft, met een mail-adres eindigend op bv @ru.nl
 
@donders.ru.nl @fnwi.ru.nl, verandert er niets.
 
 
In Exchange kan men agenda’s met elkaar delen, zodat het maken van
 
afspraken gemakkelijker wordt.  Op elk van deze nieuwe @ru.nl-adressen
 
wordt een "redirect" gezet naar het bestaande Science-adres. Hierdoor
 
mist u geen mail, u krijgt er alleen een adres bij, dat alle nieuwe mail
 
doorstuurt naar het bestaande adres.
 
 
Wilt u gebruik maken van Exchange?
 
De "redirect" kunt u uitzetten door in te loggen op https://mail.ru.nl
 
met het U-nummer voorafgegaan door "RU\" en uw RU-wachtwoord. Vervolgens
 
vinkt u bij "Options -> Create an Inbox Rule" de "redirect all incoming"
 
uit.  Het doorsturen van de Science-mail naar Exchange kan aangezet worden
 
door in de [https://dhz.science.ru.nl Doe-Het-Zelf site] bij "doorsturen" het @ru.nl mail-adres in
 
te stellen.
 
 
N.B.1: Thunderbird-gebruikers moeten de add-on "Lightning" installeren
 
om vergaderverzoeken uit Exchange te kunnen zien en erop te reageren.
 
 
N.B.2: als er een redirect-regel in Exchange is, zal Exchange de
 
mails niet doorsturen die afkomstig zijn van het doorstuur-adres,
 
om te voorkomen dat mail steeds maar doorgestuurd wordt.
 
 
Heeft u hierover vragen, neem dan [[Contact|contact op met C&CZ]].

[en]
 
Starting August 1, all FNWI employees who do not have an account yet
 
in [http://www.ru.nl/ict-uk/staff/mail-calendar/ Exchange, the RU central mail and calendar],
 
will get such an account and with that an extra mail address, of the form Givenname.Surname@ru.nl.
 
For anyone who already has an Exchange account, with a mail address
 
ending in e.g. @ru.nl @donders.ru.nl @fnwi.ru.nl, nothing changes.
 
 
In Exchange one can share calendars with eachother, which makes making appointments easier.
 
All new Exchange accounts will get a "redirect" to the current Science
 
address. As a result, you will not miss an email: you only get an extra
 
address, that redirects all new mail to the existing address.
 
 
Do you want to use Exchange?
 
The "redirect" can be turned off by logging in to https://mail.ru.nl with your U-number
 
preceded by "RU\" and your RU password. After that, you can remove the
 
check box in "Options -> Create an Inbox Rule" at "redirect
 
all incoming".
 
Sending new Science mail to Exchange can be turned on by visiting the [https://dhz.science.ru.nl Do-It-Yourself Site] and "forward" to the @ru.nl mail address.
 
 
Take Note 1: Thunderbird users should install the add-on Lightning to be
 
able to see and process Exchange calendar requests.
 
 
Take Note 2: if there is a redirect line in Exchange, Exchange will not
 
forward mails with sender address the same as the forwarding address, in
 
order to prevent mail loops.
 
 
If you have questions, please [[Contact|contact C&CZ]].

Langzamerhand gaan ook meer providers [https://www.androidplanet.nl/nieuws/bellen-via-wifi/ wifi-bellen] ondersteunen, waardoor de noodzaak van een app als Whatsapp/Telegram/Signal voor dit doel wegvalt.

The direct reason for this is that not in all wings of the Huygens building all mobile carriers have good coverage. However, the wireless Eduroam network has good coverae everywhere, which allows all staff and students to call C&CZ, independent of their mobile provider. Gradually, more providers will support [https://www.cnet.com/news/what-you-need-to-know-about-wifi-calling/ Wi-Fi calling], which eliminates the need for an app like Whatsapp/Telegram/Signal for this purpose.

Uit beveiligingsoverwegingen gaat C&CZ een verouderde, inmiddels als onveilig beschouwde,
 
wachtwoordversleuteling van Science accounts uitfaseren. Het gaat hierbij om accounts
 
waarvan sinds 1 september 2014 het wachtwoord niet is aangepast. De aanpassing vindt
 
midden februari 2017 plaats.
 
 
Indien u meerdere jaren het wachtwoord van uw Science account niet hebt aangepast,
 
kan het gebeuren dat bepaalde diensten nog gebruik maken van de oude versleuteling.
 
U kunt hierbij denken aan wachtwoorden om in te loggen op Linux machines, Eduroam-toegang middels uw science account of de Science [[Vpn|VPN]] server.
 
Om toch gebruik te kunnen blijven maken van die diensten, moet de oude versleuteling
 
vervangen worden. Dit kan door het opnieuw instellen van uw Science wachtwoord op
 
de [https://dhz.science.ru.nl Doe het Zelf site]. Onder het Menu item 'wachtwoord' kunt u het wachtwoord instellen. Op diezelfde pagina kunt u tevens zien wanneer voor het laatst uw wachtwoord
 
is aangepast.

type of Science passwords. Accounts that haven't changed their passwords since September 1, 2014,
 
will be affected. The change will be carried out mid Februari 2017.
 
 
If you haven't changed the password of your Science account for several years, it is
 
very likely that some services still use the old encryption type. Examples of these
 
services are passwords used to login to Linux machines, Eduroam access by using your
 
Science account or the Science [[Vpn|VPN]] server.
 
To continue using these services, the old encryption has to be replaced. This can be
 
done by resetting your Science password at the [https://dhz.science.ru.nl Do It Yourself site].

Als test voor de nieuwe versie van Ubuntu, 16.04 LTS, hebben we een nieuwe loginserver beschikbaar, onder de naam <tt>lilo5.science.ru.nl</tt>. Over enige tijd zal deze de vijf jaar oude loginserver <tt>lilo3</tt> vervangen. De naam <tt>lilo</tt>, die altijd naar de nieuwste/snelste loginserver wijst, zal pas dan omgezet worden van de twee jaar oude <tt>lilo4</tt> naar de nieuwe <tt>lilo5</tt>. De nieuwe <tt>lilo5</tt> is een Dell PowerEdge R430 met 2 Xeon E5-2630L v4 10-core processoren en 64 GB geheugen. Met hyperthreading aan lijkt dit dus een 40-processor machine. Voor wie de identiteit van deze server wil controleren alvorens het Science wachtwoord aan de nieuwe server te geven:
 
<tt>ECDSA key fingerprint is 7d:08:27:61:ac:c8:f1:05:4f:c9:91:2a:83:e5:c3:4f.</tt>.
 
Alle problemen met deze nieuwe versie van Ubuntu Linux [[Contact|graag melden]].

As a test of the new version of Ubuntu, 16.04 LTS, we have installed a new login server <tt>lilo5.science.ru.nl</tt>. In a few months it will replace the five year old login server <tt>lilo3</tt>. The name <tt>lilo</tt>, that always points to the newest/fastest login server, will then be moved from the two year old <tt>lilo4</tt> to the new <tt>lilo5</tt>. The new <tt>lilo5</tt> is a Dell PowerEdge R430 with 2 Xeon E5 2630L v4 processors with 10 cores.  Because we enabled hyper-threading, it is showing 40 processors. It has 64 GB of memory.
 
For users who want to check the identity of this new server before supplying their Science-password to the new server:

Digital testing/assessment with cloud application streaming

Since February 2015, digital tests/assessments can be held within the Faculty of Science. Last week, more than 300 students Computing Science were successfully graded in a large scale digital test/assessment with use of the Netbeans integrated development environment. This IDE was streamed as a Windows application from cloud supplier Amazon. The application ran in a tab of the RU Kiosk App and was delivered through Amazon Appstream 2.0 on Chromebooks. The Chromebooks were purchased last year by the university to make large scale digital testing/assessment possible.

More privacy in Mailman lists

In the context of the new privacy legislation the default properties of all mailman lists have been modified.

  • the mailman lists are no longer publicly announced on the mailman server.
  • the members of a list can only be viewed by the list administrators.
  • subscription to a list is restricted to addresses in ru.nl, radboudumc.nl and mpi.nl.

The third property is probably too restrictive for some of the lists, list administrators can revert this change in the privacy options (Ban list).

Webmail: Roundcube and Exchange alternative for small screens: Rainloop

For small screens of smartphones, the webmail of Roundcube is not very well suited. That is why there is an alternative now: Rainloop. You can set a "threaded view" in Rainloop, which is also handy for small screens. The Science addressbook is available in Rainloop. One can also use Rainloop for the RU Exchange mail. But Roundcube has many other advantages over Rainloop: manage folders shared with other users, shared labels and the administration of Sieve filters and out-of-office messages.

Old Sopho telephone exchange switched off

After more than 30 years of loyal service, the old Philips Sopho S2500 telephone exchange of the SKU (RU and Radboudumc) has been switched off and removed. This 'first digital telephone exchange' was commissioned by FNWI in August 1987, as a pilot project of PTT, Philips and the RU (then KUN). Aad Hulsbosch of C&CZ was one of the driving forces during commissioning. In 1991, the Sopho switch was expanded for the entire SKU, to approximately 15,000 connections. The telephone functionality on the SKU has recently been completely taken over by an IP telephone exchange of Mitel Mitel and the Vodafone Wireless Office wireless telephony.

Donation to free and open source software: ISC, FSF and OpenBSD

For the majority of the services C&CZ uses free software and open source software. Therefore, some time ago the idea emerged that the C&CZ employees would vote each year which projects would receive a donation of C&CZ. This year the Internet Systems Consortium, OpenBSD and the Free Software Foundation (FSF) were chosen. The Internet Systems Consortium develops a.o. BIND (DNS/nameserver) and ISC DHCP, both basic services of the network and the Internet. OpenBSD develops, next to OpenBSD itself, also OpenSSH and LibreSSL. The FSF supports GNU/Linux, which is used on almost all servers maintained by C&CZ and on many hundreds of workstations, including the computer labs.

Linux printing to Peage now simple

Initially as a test, there is now a much simpler alternative to the SMB printing from Linux. A printer "Peage" now is available on the Linux workstations and servers managed by C&CZ. The C&CZ print server translates the Science username to the U- or S-number and sends the print job onwards to a RU payprint server. Command line printing with the command lpr is also possible (lpoptions -pPeage -o SelectColor=Color to make color prints by default).

SURFdrive: now 250 GB per user

In SURF News we read that as of October 9, the storage space for users of SURFdrive has been expanded from 100 GB to 250 GB. SURFdrive is a Dropbox-like storage for work-related files, that should not have the security classification critical or sensitive. Data is stored within Dutch borders, the users remain the owners of their own data, and SURF itself provides no information to third parties, which makes SURFdrive more secure than Dropbox.

Printer Escher will be removed

The last remaining general C&CZ managed printer, the black/white printer Escher in the Library of Science will be shutdown and removed as of November 1. This marks the end of the C&CZ budgetted print system. C&CZ printbudgets are then only used for the not directly accessible poster and 3D printers. Printing on general printers has been moved to Peage more than a year ago.

Remaining C&CZ printbudget can be used for poster or 3D printing or reclaimed at C&CZ (HG03.055).

The latest version of Matlab, R2017b, is available for departments that have licenses. The software and license codes can be obtained through a mail to postmaster for those entitled to it.

All C&CZ-managed Linux machines will soon have this version installed, an older version (/opt/matlab-R2017a/bin/matlab) is still available temporarily. The C&CZ-managed Windows machines will not receive a new version during the semester to prevent problems with version dependencies in current lectures.

Replace FTP URL's by HTTPS

Because Chrome will label all FTP URL's as "not secure" starting December 2017, it is wise to change those URL's, if you offer files through ftp://ftp.science.ru.nl/pub. The same files can be found with the more secure URL https://ftp.science.ru.nl/.
