How to Create a CEC Home Page

To create a home page on CEC, follow these steps:

  1. Login to a UNIX machine. (To do this, choose the "internet" option from the Start menu and then select "telnet to clarion" or "telnet to ritz." Login using your usual CEC login name and password.

    If you have a new account, you'll need to provide the original password you received. Then, once you login on UNIX, you should type the line

    passwd

    and follow the instructions to change your password to be the same as it is on the Windows NT system.

  2. Next, type the line

    ~cs101/makehomepage

    into the telnet terminal window and hit return.

  3. Read the message displayed and write down your URL and your home page file name in case you forget them.

  4. Type logout in the terminal window (and close the window).

  5. Your .www-docs folder should be in your H: drive folder, which may be named "H:\-NFS". (If you open your H: drive folder but don't see the .www-docs folder inside, select "options" from the "View" menu. Then, in the dialog box, select "show all files" and click on "OK.")

  6. Edit the file index.html in the .www-docs folder to personalize your home page. Instructions on what to change are provided as comments in the file itself. (You can edit the file using the Symantec Cafe editor. Just select "Open" from the file menu and find the file in your .www-docs folder. If you don't see the file, that's because Cafe normally shows you only the .java files. To fix this, go to "List Files of Type" at the lower left of the file open dialog box, and select Custom (.java,.html) so that both kinds of files will be shown.)

    Note: Depending on what editor you use, when you save the file, the editor may set the permissions so that other people don't have access to your page anymore. To fix this, set the permissions to that the file is readable by all. On Windows, you can do this by selecting the file and then selecting Properties from the File menu in the explorer. Then select the chmod tab and check the "R" box under "other" (to allow other people to read the file).
