Network File Storage

The Department maintains one file server to provide network file storage to faculty, staff, & students.

The network storage should be mapped as a user's /home directory on all Department maintained computers.

On- & off-campus access is possible, but connection specifics greatly differ based on location and Operating System (more accurately protocol) used.

Generally, Linux clients can mount the storage using the mount command to access using NFS:

  • Server name: ecelinuxfs.ece.lsu.edu
  • Windows clients can access the storage using Samba, though this functionality must be enabled on a user-by-user basis

NOTE: A VPN connection is required to map ECE network drives from off-campus. More info here.
