Mounting a Unix Directory

The Unix home directories of the department WIN at TU/e are accessible via Samba. Maybe you have to ask at BCF to have your home directory connected to the Samba server (authentication works via your Exchange account).

Address

smb://vf-win.campus.tue.nl/home/<unixusername>

or the following alias for the preceding (BCF recommends NOT use the alias)

smb://vf.win.tue.nl/home/<unixusername>

Account and password is the Exchange account (from your email account x.y.z.v.d.karbargenbok@tue.nl), not your unix username and password!

Procedure

Go the the Finder, choose Go→Connect to Server… or press Cmd-K. Type the address (e.g., smb:vf.win.tue.nl/home/keesh) and press Connect. The disk will be available via your computer in the sidebar of a Finder window (chapter “Devices” in Leopard) or via the shared device vf.win.tue.nl. You have to connect to see your files.
