This is a guide to connecting to an MCECS stash using Ubuntu Linux. These instructions can be easily adapted to other Linux distributions.

Connecting from on campus (lab machines and tier 1 machines)

Using the command line

Stashes can be accessed through the command line on an MCECS machine by navigating to "/stash/stash_name", where "stash_name" is the name of your stash. Note that if you try to list the contents of "/stash", nothing will be visible. You will need to `cd` to /stash/[the name of your stash] specifically to see your files.

Using a graphical file browser

To use a graphical interface to interact with your stash, you can use Ubuntu's file browser. Move your mouse to the top left of the desktop and click the Ubuntu logo, and search for nautilus. Or You can click the folders icon on the left (Unity sidebar).

A window will open, and you can type in the location of your stash in the address bar. This is "/stash/stash_name", where "stash_name" is the name of your stash. Then hit Enter to connect.

Connecting from off campus (tier 3 machines)

Using the command line

If you'd prefer to use the command line to connect to your stash from off campus, know that stashes can be found in the /stash directory of any cecs.pdx.edu machine, including stash.cecs.pdx.edu. Note that if you try to list the contents of "/stash", nothing will be visible. You will need to `cd` to /stash/[the name of your stash] specifically to see your files.

Using a graphical FTP client

There is an FTP client built into Ubuntu's 'Nautilus' file browser. We will use it for this tutorial.

Open a file browser like before, then place sftp://stash.cecs.pdx.edu/stash/stash_name where "stash_name" is the name of your stash. Then hit Enter to connect.

The first time you connect, you will be presented with an authorization window asking if you if you trust the remote machine. Click OK, and if you've filled out the information correctly, a new window will appear with your stash files. If you are having trouble connecting to the stash, feel free to call us or send us an email at support@cat.pdx.edu
