• Drive Mapping on Windows or Mac OSX

    Research Standard and Research Project storage can be mapped to your Windows or Mac computer as a remote drive. If you are off Grounds you must be running a VPN, such as the UVA Anywhere or the More Secure VPN from ITS. We recommend the More Secure VPN if that is available to you.
    Windows Open a File Explorer page. In the left column, right click on This PC. In the drop-down box that appears, look for the Map Network Drive option. If you do not see this option, click on Show more Options, and then click on Map network drive….

  • SSH Keys

    Users can authenticate their SSH sessions using either a password or an ssh key. The instructions below describe how to create a key and use it for password-less authentication to your Linux instances.
    About SSH Keys SSH keys are a pair of encrypted files that are meant to go together. One half of the pair is called the “private” key, and the other half is the “public” key. When users use the private key to connect to a server that is configured with the public key, the match can be verified and the user is signed in. Or, put it more simply, when data is encrypted using one half of the key, it can be decrypted using the other half.

  • Globus Command-Line Interface
