Systems Support: Shares¶
Shares available to Windows users¶
The CS UNIX machines export parts of their filestore as a Windows share
So, for example, to access the exports on raptor, map the share
and to access exports on myrtle, map
Operating Systems other than Windows¶
Information on mapping this filestore under Linux and Mac OS X can be found here.
On your own computer¶
If you're connecting from your own machine you will likely need to give
your username as
UKC\yourlogin and use your Kent password. On most
University machines you won't be asked to authenticate at all.
\\*host*.kent.ac.uk\exports you will find most or all of the
|home||Your home folder on this machine. Usual disk quota is 1GB.|
|proj||Folders for project work.|
|courses||Files to support course work; placed there by teaching staff.|
When you create a file or folder via the
exports share, it inherits
its permissions from the containing folder. In simple terms this means
that (for example) files created below group-writable areas (such as
group areas below
\\*host*.kent.ac.uk\exports\proj) are themselves
This is usually what you want. In the cases where that's not what you want, use right-mouse-button->Properties->Security on the file or folder and change the permissions there.
