How do I access my Windows Lab files remotely or from Linux systems?

  • Connect to OIT’s VPN solution, then
    • Windows: connect or map a network drive to
      \\ad.gatech.edu\gtfs\coe\ece\users\<personnel|students>\<your_oit_username>
    • Windows (for advanced users): optionally, from the command-line, type (all on one line):
      net use Z: \\ad.gatech.edu\gtfs\coe\ece\users\<personnel|students>\<your_oit_username>
    • MacOS/Linux: connect to network location
      smb://ad.gatech.edu/ecefs$/users/<personnel|students>/<your_oit_username>
    • MacOS/Linux (for advanced users): optionally, from the command-line, type (all on one line):
      sudo mount -t cifs -o user=<your_oit_username>,domain=ad //ad.gatech.edu/ecefs$/users/<personnel|students>/<your_oit_username> /<mnt_dir_of_your_choice>
  • For full-time employees, replace <personnel|students> with personnel.
  • For students (both graduate and undergraduate), replace <personnel|students> with students.
  • All: replace <your_oit_username> with your GT Account username. If you do not know your GT Account username, follow the link on the passport web page for “I don’t know my username”.
  • If prompted for a username and password, use the following:

(NOTE: Windows will also recognize ecefs$ in place of gtfs\coe\ece, however the latter is the preferred method).
