Using SSCC Network Disk Space from Personal Linux Computers

This article will show you how to use the SSCC's network disk space from your personal computer running Linux. The details and pictures apply to Ubuntu 10.4, but the general procedure should work on any desktop-oriented Linux distribution.

Click on Places, then Connect to Server. Set the Service type to Windows share. The Server, Share and Folder will depend on what you want to connect to--see the pictures for some of the most common choices or consult the table below for more options. Enter your SSCC username in User Name and primo in Domain.

Click Connect and you'll be asked for your SSCC password. If your password contains any special characters (&, @, etc.) type a backslash (\) before that character. You can choose whether to save the password or not.

SSCC Disk Space Locations

Location Server Share Folder Notes
Windows Home Directory sscwin dfsroot users/username U: drive
Linux Home Directory sscunix username   Z: drive
Windows Project Directories sscwin dfsroot project or project/directory X: drive
Linux Project Directories sscunix project optional directory V: drive

Linux Temporary Space sscunix temp30days optional username All files deleted after 30 days

If you only use one project directory, you can connect to it directly by putting its full name in the Folder box. If you use more than one, do not specify a directory and you'll be able to see all of them. If you use temporary space you should be putting your files in a folder with your username, and you can connect to it directly by adding that to the Folder box as well.
