SoC Account


Your account to access SoC resources


Separate from your NUSNET account


But why do I need another account? Why
can't you just use the same account and avoid
all the confusion?


In most cases, you can still use your NUSNET
account for authentication but you need to have an
SoC account to access SoC resources

SoC Account


Used to access:


General Purpose Unix
servers


SoC Compute Cluster


MySoC Web portal


Networking services


Webmail

SoC printing services


Your files via samba file

Bad News:


but not to every printers


& there is a limit to free printing quota.


Possible to send a print job even if you are not logged
in to Unix (sunfire); But see here:
https://www.comp.nus.edu.sg/cf/printing


Possible to print from Unix (sunfire) using the “lpr”
command. See the above page for more details.
