The Chemistry Department at Iowa State University has licensed various various software applications and has made them available for students and staff to use on the department software server farm, known as curie.chem.iastate.edu. Connections to the servers in this farm are made using Microsoft's Remote Desktop Connection client. Following a successful connection you will login using your IASTATE username and password then run the licensed applications from your office, dorm room, home or any other location which allows you network access. There is an additional server known as mcurie.chem.iastate.edu which runs some software which for one reason or another cannot be run on the server farm itself. Users may connect directly via a remote desktop session to mcurie.chem.iastate.edu or may use the Server 2003 Software Server link found on the desktop when you are logged on to curie.chem.iastate.edu.
This service is available for all Iowa State University students and all Chemistry Department faculty and staff. The list of users is obtained automatically from the official University lists of declared majors and from the list of department affiliation for staff members. If you believe you should have access to this server but are not allowed to logon send email to email@example.com.
This service is restricted to on campus computers and off campus computers with a VPN connection to the campus. For information about making a VPN connection to campus refer to Iowa State Virtual Private Network (VPN).
You will lose access automatically when you no longer belong to one of the groups that give you access to the server. For Iowa State students this would be as a result of graduation or withdrawing from Iowa State. Your access will actually end when the group membership files are automatically updated. It is your responsibility to manage your files so they are stored in locations that you will have access to after your server access ends. Cleanup processes will automatically remove directories for users who no longer have access to the server.
The following software is currently available on this server.
If you have a request for software that would be useful to Chemistry students, please send it to firstname.lastname@example.org. As student computer fees are used to fund a significant portion of the software on this server, requests from students are particularly encouraged.
