Connecting to your Stash

LEARN ABOUT VPN SERVICES IN MCECS

This page includes procedures for connecting to your stashes from a Mac (a Tier 3 device as far as the Windows/Stash file servers are concerned). For these steps to work, you must make sure that you are successfully connected to one of our VPNs before proceeding.

Step 1 – In Finder, use Go -> “Connect to Server”

Step 2 – Enter your Stash Path

You should know the name of your stash. To find out the file server path your stash is located on, please visit  https://intranet.cecs.pdx.edu/stash/ . (Login with your MCECS account.) You will find the file server your stash is stored on (typically aiur, hydroclimate, caerbannog or just stash). Your path will be “smb://your_file_server.cat.pdx.edu/your_stash”.

Enter this into the address bar, removing the quotation marks and replacing “your_file_server” with the fully qualified domain name (eg. stash.cecs.pdx.edu) and replacing “your_stash” with your stash folder’s name. Then click the “Connect” button.
