This page explains how to manage the basics of your account
Changing your password
Change your password by logging into mother ( See Connecting to LUDD's servers) and issuing the following command:
passwd -r nis
You will be prompted for your old password, and asked to confirm your new one.
Changing your shell
On mother ( See Connecting to LUDD's servers), run:
passwd -r nis -e
You need to verify with your password, and then enter the full path to your new shell. Valid shells are listed in /etc/shells
Forwarding your mail
Log in to any of our servers ( See Connecting to LUDD's servers) and run the following commands:
cd ~ echo "[mail-address]" > .forward
where [mail-address] is the mailaddress you want to forward TO.
For example, if I want to forward mail to the address firstname.lastname@example.org, I would have run
cd ~ echo "email@example.com" > .forward
