If you only expect to be accessing your HSU Network Folder on campus, you can set up a mapped drive, which makes the folder appear as an additional hard drive on your computer. Under Windows, it will show up as a drive in MyComputer; Macintosh users will see an icon on their desktop.
Staff and Faculty should contact their ITC for assistance in connecting to their Network Folder before consulting the instructions below to set up the mapped drive.
To configure a mapped drive, you will need to have available:
Windows XP has WebDAV capabilities built into the operating system. The following instructions are based on Windows XP Service Pack 3.
We recommend the Goliath (http://www.webdav.org/goliath/) WebDAV application for OS X because it supports secure (HTTPS) WebDAV connections. You will need to have Goliath installed prior to proceeding. The following instructions are based on Goliath v1.0.x.
Using KNetAttach (Network Folder Wizard), check WebFolder (WebDAV) and enter the following information:
WebDAV is an alternative method of transferring files to your Network Folder from your computer via a web browser using HTTP/HTTPS, instead of using a Secure File Transfer Protocol (sftp) application such as SSH. However, an SFTP application is recommended for Windows Vista, Windows7, and MacOS X users.
To configure a WebDAV connection, you will need to have available:
Humboldt State University recommends using the WinSCP application for Windows because it supports secure file transfer connections. You will need to install WinSCP before following the instructions below, which are based on WinSCP 5.1.1
Please note that command line (terminal or SSH) access is not permitted on this server.
Humboldt State University recommends the use of CyberDuck or Fugu SFTP applications for OS X secure file transfers. Please download and install your preferred application before following the instructions below to upload a file to your Network Folder.
The instructions below are based on CyberDuck v2.8 and Fugu v1.2.0. Advanced users may use the command line to connect to the server if they wish.
Linux users can use the command line to connect to their Network Folder for SFTP transfers as follows:
Note: Command line access to Network Folders is not permitted for terminal or SSH connections.
Secure File Transfer Protocol (SFTP) is a process that enables you to transfer files between computers securely. SFTP is Humbold State University's preferred method for transferring files to your Network Folder, as it ensures that all file transfers meet the University's data protection compliance requirements. If you need to access folders other than your Network Folder remotely, please talk to your ITC about appropriate alternatives.
Faculty can store files they want to share with their students (or other HSU faculty and staff) in the Faculty Shared Folder. Students can access these files from anywhere with an Internet connection.
If you are a faculty member, you will automatically get a Faculty Shared Folder in your HSU Network Folder. When you connect to your Network Folder, you will see a folder that looks like this:
