Problems connecting to DIUF-file
If you are having problems connecting to DIUF-file it might be because...
  • there was an error in the mapping process. You must do the mapping as follows:
    • DIUF\your_username (if you don't do this the computer tries to do it as UNIFR\your_username, which will not work)
    • the folder should be diuf-file\share (if your computer is not connected by default to the unifr domain use diuf-file.unifr.ch\share)
  • you used the wrong password. You have to use your LINUX password (you got an extra mail when you requested a linux account), not the UNIFR password. If you forgot your linux password, you can request a new one.
