Locating the filespace remotely

When accessing your DS filespace, you can use a number of methods. You can work on your Web pages on another computer and then transfer them to the DS filespace.

  • DS-Files can be accessed within a web browser by navigating to https://dsfiles.ds.cam.ac.uk/ and entering your Raven credentials.
  • CIFS access (only from within the CUDN or using the VPDN) mounts your group filespace on your desktop. The web pages at http://www.uis.cam.ac.uk/online-help/devices-networks-printing/managed-desktops/ds-filestore/cifs give instructions, depending on the operating system of your computer.
  • sftp access is by logging in to sftp.ds.cam.ac.uk, using your DS username and password. You will be logged into your personal filespace. To get to the group directories, go to /ux/groups/
  • ssh access to the Remote Linux service - ssh to linux.ds.cam.ac.uk and cd to /ux/groups/
