These are instructions for mounting/mapping a shared folder to a desktop or laptop. These instructions will only work from a computer connected to the NCEAS network or the UCSB VPN.
If you have already mapped a homes share, subsequent maps need to take the form of \\aurora\username.
This is only needed if you're mounting multiple //aurora/homes shares. Most people will want to use the simpler steps above.
Mount all shares with a username and password. Be sure to erase this information when finished if you're using a shared computer, or others will be able to view your password. See the next option for more security.
Open a terminal and run the following commands (replace username with the username you wish to connect with):
$ mkdir ~/Desktop/username $ mount -t smbfs //username@aurora/username ~/Desktop/username
When finished, you may need to unmount the share manually
$ umount ~/Desktop/username
