UW-Physics AFS

The UW Physics provides a remote file sharing service via AFS.

AFS is a distributed filesystem which provides location independence, scalability, security, and transparent migration capabilities. It's available for a broad range of systems, including Linux, MacOS-X and Microsoft Windows.

Other operating systems, follow the standard setup instructions on OpenAFS website.
Cell: physics.wisc.edu
(Cell alias: physics)

Our AFS files may be accessed on AFS-enabled computers via this path
/afs/physics.wisc.edu/

If you want a UW-Physics AFS account, or would like help installing or configuring AFS, contact help@physics.wisc.edu. Note that you must send mail from a .edu, .cern.ch, or desy.de email account.

To change your AFS password, ssh  to  "login.physics.wisc.edu" and run the "passwd" command.
