- If you are employed at UiB, type nturt.uib.no or skuld.uib.no (central or faculty administration) or platon.uib.no (HF) or another server (If you are employed at UiB and are not sure about the name and path of the server and your home directory, you may check your work computer, a colleague, or contact BRITA),

- Type 22 as Port number

- and type the path to youe home directory behind Folder,


  • (check the tips at the end of this guide),

- type in your User Name,

It is possible to make a bookmark for this connection to avoid doing all this every time you need the connection. Then you also need a name for the bookmark, e.g. UiB home directory.
