Create a Link to Your Student Organization Group Directory

To create a link that will allow you to easily change to your student organization directory to manage your files:

  1. Log in to your UDelNet account.

    If you are using a Windows computer, use the SSH Secure Shell application. If you do not have this application on your computer, you can download a free copy from the UDeploy Web site.

    If you are using a Macintosh computer with OS X, use the Secure Terminal program that is included in Mac OS X.

  2. To create a link to your group directory, type

  3. ln -s ~www/docs/stu-org/directory_name  docs

    replacing directory_name with the name of your group directory as requested in your Student Application for Home Page. (Note: Be sure to include the tilde (~) before www as above.)

    Once you have created this link, you can use the UNIX "cd" command to move from your home directory to your Student Organization directory by typing

    cd docs

    then pressing the ENTER key. You can return to your home directory by typing


    and pressing the ENTER key.

Note: You will most often manage your files using the SSH Secure Shell file transfer program, available from the University's software download page, for a Windows computer or Fetch for a Mac, also available from the software download page. The link you create in #2 above will make it very easy to get to your directory (folder) on the Web server.
