Run Nifty Telnet and log to any Andrew workstation (Host Name is unix.andrew.cmu.edu
Create a symbolic link from your home dir to the submission folder. A
symbolic link is a way to make a directory or file in one location appear as if
its also in another location. You can create a link by running
This command will create the symbolic link namend '15200' in your home
account. When you 'cd' into the 15200 directory in your home account,
you will actually be moved to the /afs/andrew.cmu.edu/course/15/200/www
If by any reasons you are failed to create a correct link, you should
first delete whatever you created (you do this by running
rm 15200 ) and then repeat the above procedure.
Run SSH, WS_FTP32, KerbFTP or any other FTP application available on your computer;
Log to any Andrew workstation (Host Name is unix.andrew.cmu.edu) by using your
andrewID and password;
In the Remote System window you should see your home account that contains
the folder '15200' . If there is no such folder, repeat the submission setup.
If you use KerbFTP, see Using KerbFTP instructions below;
Double click on '15200' and you will be transferred to the
You should see the folder 'handin'. Go inside and find the folder which
is named as your andrewID;
Inside this folder you should see 'lab00', 'lab01' ... 'lab08' folders. Now you
can transfer your *.java files to a correspondent lab-folder.
Once you connect to andrew.cmu.edu using ssh, you start SFTP to transfer files.
Read the above documentation on how to use SFTP.
When you use KerbFTP to handin your assignment you should see the
symbolic link '15200' in your home directory on andrew file system. If you
do NOT see 15200 at all, you need to create it. Read instructions in
Submission Setup on how to create a symbolic link.
The problem with KerbFTP is that the link 15200 will be shown as a file. This means that
you cannot cd to it. Here is what you need to do:
go to Options;
click on Remote Directory;
choose Change Root Directory.;
In the window that pops up type your symbolic link name 15200.
You should see the submission folder in the left window.

Here is a list of some commands that will come in handy when you want to manage your files
cd <directory> -- Change to location to <directory>

Your recitation section is run by a TA, and it is the TAs job to collect and report all of your
course grades. It is thus extremely important that any change of section be done with (a) the
permission of your current TA and (b) the permission of your new TA. If either your current or
new TA fails to appprove of your section switch, then you may not make the switch. There are
many reasons why a TA might refuse a section switch. For example, a section might already have
too many students.
What if I need more time to do a homework assignment?
If you feel that you have a good reason for an extension, please see an instructor or your TA
in person, preferably during office hours.
