Home directory access
All students and employees at UiB have a home directory (personal storage) on a server, associated with their user account.
The main advantagees of storing files on the server, is that the contents are backed up every night, and that the user is relieved of having to carry their files on a memory stick, CD, DVD or other external storage medium. You only need access to a computer from which you an connect to your home directory.
You can connect to your home directory from other computers at home or outside of UiB.
- Connecting to your home share in Windows XP
- Connecting to your home directory from a private computer using Windows Vista
- Connecting to your home directory in Windows 7
- Connecting to your home directory from private computer using SSH/SFTP (on Windows)
- Connecting to your home directory in Mac OSX 10.4 (Tiger)
- Connecting to your home directory in Mac OSX 10.5 (Leopard)
- Connecting to your home directory in Mac OS X 10.7 (Lion)
An alternative way of connecting to the home directory, is using SSH or SFTP. If you are a student, type "login.uib.no" in the "host name" field. Employees choose their respective server, such as nturt.uib.no, skuld, helix, or platon. Use the same user name and password that you use when you log in to webmail, MySpace, etc. SSH software may be downloaded from https://tjinfo.uib.no/program.
