Instructions for setting up a new accounts ONLY on i5.nyu.edu:


PART ONE:

Use Terminal on a Mac or Putty on a PC and Set up Your Web Page on I5 account (You only need to set this up once)

If you forgot your password, you can reset it by visiting this webpage: http://start.nyu.edu/

Note: ITS requires a secure login to i5. This can be done using "Putty" on the PC and Terminal on the Mac using "ssh". Terminal is included in OS X on the Mac; but Putty is available via download from ITS at http://www.nyu.edu/its/software/ and is also on the NYU-Net CD which is available from ITS for students at no charge.

Please note: follow these instructions very carefully! They are very straightforward, but if you don't type the commands exactly as given, you may render your account unusable.

These instructions are for the Mac:

1. Double-click on Terminal
2. At the command line, type in ssh yournetid@i5.nyu.edu so you will be logged in under your netid.

On the PC, open "Putty":

  1. type in the name of the host which is "i5.nyu.edu" in this case
  2. select "SSH"
  3. Click "Open".

If this is the first time you are logging in, your password is the same as your NYUHome account password. If you forgot your password, you can reset it by visiting this webpage:

http://start.nyu.edu/

If you continue to have problems login into your i5.nyu.edu account, please inform me ASAP!
