To be able to connect to your UiB home directory as a network disk, you need a working UiB VPN.

Employees

To connect to your home directory you need to know the following:

  • Your UiB username and your password.
  • The name of the server where your Unix home directory is stored. (Typically named after a train station along the Bergen-Oslo line. Examples: finse, ustaoset and voss) See step 2 for instructions.
  • The name of the server and the folder where your Windows home directory is stored. Server examples: skuld and platon. Folder examples: home and home2. See step 3 for instructions.


  1. In Finder: Go -> Connect to Server, or use the key combination cmd + k.
