MS Office on Linux MiniPCs

We have installed a version of the CrossOver software which allows to run some MS Windows programs in Linux. Enter the command
It will ask for your password, since it connects to another server machine.

Then a window pops up where you can start a selection of MS Office 2010 programs like MS Word or MS Excel. This is not perfect but may help when you have to work with such a file and libreoffice is not up to the job.

Laptops & WLAN

  • The university WLAN is managed by the URZ (university's IT center). You can apply for accounts here, installation instructions are here.
  • For a network connection via cable, give us the MAC address of the ethernet card of your computer.

Single sign-on

Our Institute's user management is based on LDAP with the aim of "single sign-on": One username and one password for all central services. The one and only way to change your central password is this web interface. Presently, we use LDAP for
  • Mail access (IMAP and POP3 server, webmailer)
  • Login to several Linux machines like miserv112, misun214,...
  • FTP access to your homepages
  • Access to your "Netzlaufwerk" (backup drive) from Windows
  • Access to password-protected web pages (Fakultätsrat)
  • Login to MiniPCs and SunRay terminals.
  • Adding entries to our Web calendar or to the "News" section of our homepage.

VPN and WebVPN

VPN (virtual private network) allows you to access the internet from home via the university network. For the outside world, your computer appears as if it belongs to the university network.

This allows, e.g., access to online journals licensed for our university network.

Go to for WebVPN. (Use your university account including the part.)

From this address you can download and install the AnyConnect Client for a full VPN solution.
