The Computer Society offers you extra disk space, and the chance to use this disk space directly from your campus account. This can be done using the SMB protocol. SUCS runs a server called Samba, which is available at sucssmb. For most users the DAV option described above is easier now that almost all the campus machines support DAV.
Getting an accountIn order for you to use this service, you must have an account created by a member of staff. Once you have an account, follow the instructions below.
To connect to the server, download mapsucs.bat and run it from the Command Prompt (Start, Programs, Command Prompt) with your username as a parameter:
|> mapsucs username|
You will be prompted for your Samba password three times - once for every drive that will be mapped. The drives are mapped as follows:
|sucssmbhomes||h:||Your personal disk space on SUCS|
|sucssmbwinapps||i:||Windows Applications installed on SUCS|
|sucssmbftp||j:||The SUCS Anonymous FTP site|
Once the drives have been mapped once, a record of this is made in your personal Windows Registry settings. This means that your drives will be automatically mapped every time you log on. If for any reason your settings are lost, all you have to do is run the batch file again to recreate the mappings.
