To arrange for access to IoN data storage servers, mail email@example.com.
You can enter the path to your folder on our servers into windows explorer. It is in the form:
\\dendrite\homeX\XXX or \\synapse\homeX\XXX
XXX is the username or groupname you were allocated. Personal space is on home2 and group space is on home3.
All machines on Campus in IoN will have the drive mapped as a U: (for users) and V: (for groups) - no additional log in is needed for those machines.
On non-campus machines you can right-click on 'network' in windows explorer and choose 'map network drive' - entering the above address as the network drive locations. Login is by means of your usual campus username and password.
On macs, you can choose 'go' and 'connect to server', giving servername smb://dendrite/homex/XXX Domain:campus, and username and password being those for campus.
On linux machines, create a folder yourfolder in mnt to mount your share XXX using username nXXXXX, then mount using the line:
mount.cifs //dendrite/homex/XXX /mnt/yourfolder -o user=nXXXXX dom=campus
Campus Webfolders service can be used to to access your space on the IoN fileservers from off-campus. Note that this service presently excludes certain file extensions, so some files may not be accessible this way.
Instructions for this are available at:
Simply replace the URL given on that site with the appropriate URL as follows.
You can also simply type the URL into a web browser if you only require read-access to your files.
All drives accessible as U:, V:, and W: drives on campus are accessible using the following 3 URLs:
For lab-group folders (V: drive), replace XXXXX with your group folder name:
For lab-group folders (W: drive), replace XXXXX with your group folder name:
For personal folders (U: drive), replace XXXXX with your username NB: anomaly ionV not ionU:
Finally, you can connect to your machine using remote desktop to transfer files between home and your office machine (and any network drives that machine has access to). See the IoN Remote Desktop pages
