Each graduate office typically has at least one general purpose CSLab machine. While these machines do not restrict logins locally or remotely, it is expected that you seek the permission of the people whose office the machine is in before using it.
Many faculty maintain labs for use with their research projects. Machines in these labs are typically to be used only by members of the appropriate faculty member's research group. These labs include:
Amos Eaton 118 is dedicated primarily to Cisco Academy networking hardware
Amos Eaton 204 is Professor Adali's Multimedia Information Integration Lab, containing several workstations dedicated to teaching and research in that area.
linux.cs.rpi.edu is a rotary of new Ubuntu machines (Xeon X3460@2.8GHz w/8G ram, Xeon X3360@2.83GHz w/8G ram)
