Network Drives are basically hard drives that can be accessed over a network. Stevens maintains several Network Drives. They are made available to the Students and Faculty at Stevens. The computer that hosts or holds the Drives is called '''[[storage01]]'''. To map a network drive requires some authentication, specifically the Stevens Login Information.

Your access method is very similar to those with Windows XP or 2000. However, some

different steps are required so your computer can find the [[storage01]] server and
+
-
to set permissions on your '''public_html''' directory if you want to create a web site. Follow
+
-
the steps below:
+
-
# You must log into Windows 98 with a username that exactly matches your [[Pipeline Account|Pipeline username]]. Otherwise, these steps will not work.
+
-
# The server called '''storage01''' is located in a Windows domain called '''Campus'''. Go to '''Start''', '''Settings''', '''Control Panel''', '''Network'''. Select the '''Identification''' tab. Change the name of your Workgroup to '''Campus'''. You will see a message that your computer is updating some information. Reboot your computer when prompted.
+
-
# Using Windows Explorer's menu, '''Tools''', select '''Map Network Drive'''. Enter the path '''\\storage01\username''' where '''username''' is your [[Campus Domain Account|Windows Campus Domain username]]. (This is the same as your [[Pipeline Account|Pipeline username]].) Enter your [[Campus Domain Account|Windows Campus Domain]] password. Your should now have a connection to '''storage01'''. You should be able to see '''storage01''' and your directory in Windows Explorer.
+
-
# To recreate a directory for your web pages, make a folder called '''public_html''' You may now copy html files into it.
+
-
'''NOTE''': Your files will not be viewable on the web until you set the permissions on your '''public_html''' file. You cannot do this on Windows 98 due to limitations of Windows 98. The workaround given below will solve the problem.

The following instructions are not needed unless you accidentally deleted your '''public_html''' directory or changed the permissions on your directory. If you want to make a web page and your computer is running Windows 98, there is one more set of instructions. You only need to do the following procedure once, after which you can use your Win 98 computer for accessing your web pages on '''storage01'''.

# Find a computer running Windows XP or Windows 2000. (E.g., ask to use a friend or colleague's computer, or use one in a computer lab on campus.)

-

You can map a network drive to [[Storage01]] using the smbmount utility. You can run the following command as a regular user:
+
-
$ smbmount //storage01/share /path/to/mount -o username=myusername,workgroup=campus,uid=mylocalusername,ip=storage01.stevens.edu
+
-
* '''//storage01/share''' is the mount location.  Replacing 'share' with your [[Campus Domain Account|domain username]] will map the network drive to your personal storage space.  Please read the article on [[Storage01]] for other possible locations.
+
-
* '''/path/to/mount''' is the location you want to map/mount the network drive at.  You can map it to a mountpoint in your current directory such as 'mnt' by not using any slashes (full pathname is also fine)
+
-
* ''username''='''myusername''' - '''myusername''' should be replaced with your [[Campus Domain Account|domain username]].
+
-
* ''workgroup='''campus''' - this specifies the domain to check your username and password against, leave it like this
+
-
* ''uid''='''mylocalusername''' - mylocalusername should be the name of your linux user (whoami will tell you this if you are unsure).  This is the user who owns the directory/mountpoint you are mounting/mapping to.
+
-
* ''ip''='''storage01.stevens.edu''' - this specifies an "ip address" (a [[FQDN]] in this case) to locate [[Storage01]] by.  Leave as-is.
+
-
When you run this command, you should see a prompt similar to:
+
-
Password:
+
-
Type in your [[Campus Domain Account|domain password]] and press enter.  You will now be able to access the file stored on storage01 at the mountpoint you specified.

Network Drives are basically hard drives that can be accessed over a network. Stevens maintains several Network Drives. They are made available to the Students and Faculty at Stevens. The computer that hosts or holds the Drives is called storage01. To map a network drive requires some authentication, specifically the Stevens Login Information.

Available Drives

More Information about the Available Drives can be found on the storage01 page.

  • public - Matlab, Solidworks, Uniprint.
  • ms - Microsoft software, Mathematica, Adobe Acrobat, etc.
  • personal - Your personal web space and files.
  • groups - For departments, organizations and clubs.
