Copied from the FAQ network home drive at Jacobs:
I am using a Linux system. How do I get my home drive?
Tip from K. Korte Re: Linux:
under Linux all the backslashes should be slashes meaning:
mount -t cifs -o username=JACOBS/JDOE,password=JDOESPassword //storage.jacobs.jacobs-university.de/homeshare/j/jdoe /my/mount/point/would be the correct command.
Tip from C. Lange Re: Linux:
here are two ways of making it work. Make sure that Samba is installed and that CIFS is supported by your kernel.
- GUI: Nautilus (the Gnome file manager) has a nice dialog for connecting to network drives: File → Connect to Server, and then:
- Service type: Windows share
- Server: storage.jacobs.jacobs-university.de
- Share: homeshare
- Folder: y/yourname
- User Name: yourname
- Domain Name: jacobs
- On the command line (or create an /etc/fstab entry): mount -t cifs -o username=yourname,workgroup=jacobs //storage.jacobs.jacobs-university.de/homeshare/y/yourname /path/to/mountpoint
Tip from S. Schmidt Re: Linux:
If you are using KDE, fire up Konqueror and enter the URL:
smb://storage.jacobs.jacobs-university.de/homeshare/j/jdoe(with "j" replaced by the first character of your username and "jdoe" beeing your username).
I am using a Macintosh system. How do I get my home drive?
Similar to Linux.
Tip from S. Schmidt Re: Mac OSX
In Finder click on "Go", select "Connect to Server...". Then enter the path:
smb://storage.jacobs.jacobs-university.de/homeshare/j/jdoeIn the authentication dialog enter your CampusNet username and password below the domain name "JACOBS".
