UCT-specific, Open Source specific howtos go here.
If you want to create one, send a LEG admin an e-mail.
Could you post a link on how to connect to uct-secure using Ubuntu 9.04?
Are the provided howto’s not sufficient? I don’t think much has changed. Follow the jaunty instructions
Please post a how to on setting the uct proxy for the software entre and terminal downloads
Im a nw member and I would like to know if it is possible to download Ubuntu(any version), or Xandra on LEG
Yes: See http://www.leg.uct.ac.za/mirrors/linux/ubuntu
Can someone provide guidance (for a relatively ignorant Ubuntu user) on how one sets up Thunderbird proxies to communicate with gmail (or any other webmail) accounts (using IMAP) from the UCT network? When I try to use the same proxy configuration as I have in Mozilla Firefox, I get the error message ‘Connection to server gmail timed out’.
Thunderbird doesn’t use http to talk to gmail, so it shouldn’t need to go through a proxy
