    3 To add a new user to the system, we use newuser (or specifically, `/usr/local/data/i386-linux/sbin/newuser`). This will create the necessary home directory and NFS automount configuration on the machines in addition to the creation of the user. Note that to use this script you will have to have an ssh-agent running with the root account private key added ('eval `ssh-agent`; ssh-add' should suffice). To change your passwd or shell, use 'passwd' and 'chsh' respectively. 'passwd' takes advantage of PAM and is unmodified from the distribution, whereas 'chsh' had to be reimplimented and lives in /usr/local/bin/chsh. Try '-h' for invocation details and help.

    5 In addition to all this, there is an excellent Java-based LDAP browser available from the CVS tree from src/ldap/ldapbrowser. To use it, check it out from CVS and 'cd' into the directory. From there, run 'lbe.sh', which should bring up the browser. This is used for subsequent edits and group additions, etc.  
     5Here is information for Windows users: 
     6{{{ 
     7I've now created your SIG LDAP account. Whenever 
     8you're ready to try logging in, start Programs-> 
     9"UWICK Applications"->"SSH Secure FTP"->"Secure FTP" 
     10(If you don't have "UWICK Applications" get it here: 
     11https://www.washington.edu/uware/uwick/starter/ )

     13Click on "Quick Connect" and put the hostname: 
     14 
     15sig.biostr.washington.edu 
     16 
     17and your username. Leave the port number as 22. Click 
     18connect and it will ask you about the SSH key, select 
     19the last option "Proceed and save key" and then enter 
     20the temporary password we set up. 
     21 
     22Then you are connected. Go to "Window|New Terminal" 
     23to get a command line and type 'passwd' to change your 
     24password. The built-in LDAP password program is fairly 
     25picky about strong passwords. Enjoy!
