There is a file server on space.local.

It is 650 GB on an external USB harddrive and completely read/writable to anyone in the space.

Access using SFTP

Ubuntu

Open the file manager and in the top menu (all the way at the top of the screen) choose "File -> Connect to Server". Fill out the dialogue box like so:

  • Service type: SSH
  • Server: space.local
  • Folder: data
  • User Name: sudoer

You can choose to add a bookmark so you don't have to fill out the dialogue every time.

The password is: sudoer

Mac OS X

You don't need to download any programs. Just go to your finder, scroll down to the shared area and you'll see space. Login as a guest, no password needed.

On a mactinosh just click on finder and then you have access to space.local

FTP from a Mac

You can use the free Cyberduck program.

  • Server: space.local
  • Username: sudoer
  • Password: sudoer

Windows

On Windows, it's probably easier to use Windows filesharing (see below). If you for some reason prefer SFTP, you can use the free/open WinSCP software.

  • Server: space.local
  • Username: sudoer
  • Password: sudoer

Access using SMB/CIFS (Windows filesharing)

Ubuntu

In the file manager, make sure the side pane is open (if not, hit F9 to toggle the side pane). Click "Network" in the side pane, then "Windows Network", then "Workgroup", then "SPACE" and finally "sudoroom public data on space". You can now browse the available data and upload new data by dragging the files to the window.

Windows General

Files server screeenshot.PNG

Go to start -> run. In that box write "\\SPACE". You should see a folder. The default username/password guest/guest give you read and write access.

Windows XP

Just go to "My Network Places" and "sudoroom public data on space server". You can now browse the available data and upload new data by dragging the files to the window.

If it asks for a username and password, they're both "guest" (without the quotes).
