External Mount of Data Disks

From Microsoft Windows

Using the pull-down Tools menu from Windows Explorer, chose Map Network Drive ...

Mount Network Drive

In the Map Network Drive window that comes up, chose a Drive and enter "\\tesla.cbi.fas.nyu.edu\CBIUserData" for Folder (don’t forget to put the double backslash at the beginning). You probably want to uncheck Reconnect at logon (or the disk will be mounted each time you log in) and press Finish.

Mount Network Drive

If your username and password on the PC are the same as on Tesla, the drive will be mounted right away and you can access it as if it was another disk on your PC. Otherwise you will be given an authentications screen (you can also force this screen by selecting Connect using a different user name in the previous window.)

Mount Network Drive

Once you’re done, don’t forget to unmount the drive either through the Tools menu or by right-clicking on the disk image and selecting Disconnect.

Unmount Network Drive

These instructions work also for your home directories, just use CBIHome instead of CBIUserData for the disk name.

From Apple OS X

Using the pull-down Go menu, chose Connect to Server ...

Mount Network Drive

In the Connect to Server window that comes up enter "afp://tesla.cbi.fas.nyu.edu/" for Server Address and press Connect.

Connect To Server

You will get an authentication window. After entering your information (for Name you can enter your username or your full name), press Connect.

Authenticate

You will then be given a list of disks that you can mount, pick CBIUserData or CBIHome if you want your home directory.
