Use either SSHFS or Nautilus/Gnome to access UBfs from Linux. SSHFS is recommended if you are using a Linux distribution that supports FUSE, such as Ubuntu.
You must use a campus IP address, use eduroam wireless on campus or run AnyConnect VPN client if you are off campus.
Use SSHFS if you are using a Linux distribution that supports FUSE, such as Ubuntu.
Your distribution may have different commands or different names. This command should work on a typical Ubuntu-based distribution.
sudo apt-get install sshfs
Create a folder, such as ubfs, into which to mount your UBfs files with the correct permissions:
sudo mkdir /ubfs
sudo chown <current user> /ubfs
sudo chmod u+rwx /ubfs
Mount UBfs to your folder /ubfs to access your UBfs space:
sshfs email@example.com:/ubfs/myfiles/1st_UBIT_letter/2nd_UBIT_letter/UBITName/ /ubfs/
where UBITName is your UBITName and 1st_UBIT_letter and 2nd_UBIT_letter are the first and second letters of your UBITName.
You can view your files with Nautilus/Gnome, but if you want to edit them you must save them locally and then upload them using sftp.
