Web Tools for Clam Users


Manage Your NetID (Account)

  • Create a NetID - creates both a NetID and a computer account needed for email, public labs, and other services.  On the next page, select the link for Camden Students (clam).
  • NetID/Password Management - Clicking this link will immediately prompt you to login, do not enter @crab or @camden, just enter your NetID and password. The NetID management tool allows you to change your password, manage security questions (students only), manage NetIDs (admins only), and manage your email alias(es) (like firstname.lastname@rutgers.edu) and email delivery addresses (accounts that should receive email forwarded through your alias(es)).
  • Reset Forgotten Password - Please DO NOT use this tool if you know your current password. To use this tool you must either know the answers to your security questions or have a support key from the Camden Computing Services Help Desk.  You can contact the Help Desk at (856)225-6274 or via email at help@camden.rutgers.edu.

Manage Your Rutgers-Camden Email Account

  • Setup Mail Forwarding - Have any email sent to your Rutgers account automatically forwarded to an alternate email account.  When prompted for a username, DO NOT enter @clam, or @camden, just enter your NetID.
  • Control Spam Filtering - Configure spam filtering for your Rutgers email account. When prompted for a username, DO NOT enter @clam, or @camden, just enter your NetID.
  • Control Vacation Auto-Reply - Configure and enable/disable automatic replies to messages sent to your Rutgers email account, to alert people that you are not reading email while away. When prompted for a username, DO NOT enter @clam, or @camden, just enter your NetID.
  • Change or Restrict Online Directory Information - currently registered students may use this tool to either change or restrict the display of student information (including email address) in the Rutgers Online Directory.

Manage Your Rutgers-Camden Computer Account

  • Check Your Account Quota - this tool displays the current and maximum storage space allocated to your clam account.  This storage space is used to hold your H: drive and your Rutgers email. When prompted for a username, DO NOT enter @clam, or @camden, just enter your NetID.
  • Web Site Permissions - this tool will set all the permissions inside your public_html directory on clam to be world-readable.  This will make the contents of public_html accessible via the web. When prompted for a username, DO NOT enter @clam, or @camden, just enter your NetID.
  • Secure File Permissions - this tool will increase the security of files and directories in your clam account (H: drive) by setting the permissions so that only you can read or write to them. This DOES NOT include files and directories in the public_html directory. When prompted for a username, DO NOT enter @clam, or @camden, just enter your NetID.
  • Change Your Unix Shell - typically only useful for experienced Unix users. This tool allows you to switch between various shells (csh, ksh, bash, tcsh).  If you don't know what any of this means, you probably don't need to use this tool.
  • Change Your GECOS Information - also typically only useful for experienced Unix users.  This tool allows you to edit your GECOS (also called finger) information.  If you don't know what any of this means, you probably don't need to use this tool, either.
