There are two user directories you should be concerned with on your machine:
/home/std<yournumber>. Actually, you probably won't be using this very much at all, except for Unix initialization files and work that you store.
/web/std<yournumber>. This has two subdirectories you should be concerned with:
www: These are the publicly visible files served by your server. The public name of your Web server is the same as the machine name. For example, if you are std1 and you write the file /web/std1/www/sample.html, people with Web browsers can access this using the url http://lcsweb1.lcs.mit.edu/sample.html.
tcl: This contains tcl library procedures that extend the capability of your Web server. You will be doing this in later problem sets and projects. (The .tcl pages that you work with in Problem Set 1 are not examples of these. Those pages go in www.)
Our machines are set up so you cannot telnet into them, because it is insecure. Instead, you must use an encrypted connection via ssh.
Note: There will be a fairly substantial number of processes running on each development machine. Please be courteous to others (and yourself) by not running unnecessary things. (e.g. you shouldn't need to run Netscape and you probably shouldn't be compiling things)
