CSE 436 (Fall 2005)
Mounting your CEC directory in the comfort of your dorm room
- For Windows 2000, NT, or XP:
- Right-click on My Computer and choose Map Network Drive.
- Change the drive letter to H: and the server path to
where USERNAME is your user name on CEC
(for example rkc4 or tmpsp037).
- Make sure "reconnect at login" is checked.
- Click ok. When prompted supply your CEC username in the form
- For Windows 98
If you want to work on CS101 in your dorm room, then a nice idea would
be to keep your files on the cec fileserver. This way, when you come
to demo, your files are already on the lab computers. Also, it is
most likely the case that the CEC
backed-up more rigorously than your personal computer.
If you are running Windows 98, here is how to mount your CEC directory.
First, you have to do the following to set things up.
- Change your workgroup to cec.
- Open the Networking control panel
- Click on Identification
- Type in cec
- No need to reboot yet
- Edit the (perhaps nonexistent yet) file
lmhosts, with no extension,
located in your C:\WINDOWS directory. Note, the file must be the one
that has no extesion; you may already have a file names
is NOT the file you should edit. Most likely, you will have to create
the file as it won't exist already. You can use emacs or notepad to create
- Add the following line to that file
- Save the file
- OK, now reboot
Now, here's how you mount your home directory.
- Make sure your workgroup is cec, as above. If not, reperform that
step and reboot.
- Log into your computer using your cec account name (for example,
rkc4, or tmpsp037). Go ahead and do this even if your computer complains
that it can't validate your login.
- From your My Computer icon, right click to Map Network Drive.
- For the Path, fill in the following
where you substitute your cec login name for USERNAME.
Your home directory should be mapped and you can now use your
locally installed software to work
on your labs at home.
