Temporary SMB access restriction

Wednesday, April 11th, 2012

Last night a security problem was detected in the SMB server software we use for our group and home shares. In order to protect your data and our systems, we

temporarily restrict access to our group and home shares to the ETHZ IP address range

until security updates are available. If you’re outside the ETH network and need to access your data, use VPN. We expect the updates to be released later today or tomorrow and will then go back to world wide access.

WebDAV gateway to our file servers

Monday, January 25th, 2010

If you’re on the road a lot, you might be familiar with our webhome service which provides universal access to your home directory. While this can be a life-saver in some cases, there are a few limitations: a) you only get access to your home directory, b) it’s only viable for single-file operations. The protocol of choice for remote file access across public firewalled networks is WebDAV. We are now happy to announce a WebDAV gateway to our file servers.

Should you be interested in using this service, please read our documentation page.
