The shared area on Bifrost

Bifrost is a file server run by IFI-drift. It is available as a standard network share on Windows and MacOS. Access outside of UiO should via VPN, Remote Desktop or via secure shell (ssh). We'll cover the access methods and then the general layout of the bifrost area. Unfortunately, outside the network also means that eduroam doesn't work either.

Paths to access Bifrost

The URL to access bifrost is

\\bifrost\projects\mecs

on Windows or

smb://bifrost/projects/mecs

On MacOS or other Unix-like operating systems.

If you are logged into login.ifi.uio.no via ssh, you can also access the project area using the path:

/bifrost/projects/mecs

or it's full path:

/bifrost/project5/mecs

Enterprising people who can access via ssh can also access it via sshfs, but that is left as an exercise to the reader.

Read and write permissions on Bifrost

By default, everyone at IFI has read access to this area! That is, anyone who has a IFI-login could see what's in the path. This was an intentional decision. So, work with a rule of thumb that anything you put in this drive area could be seen by any of your colleagues at IFI.

If you want write access to the files, you have need to belong to the ifi-mecs group. Contact Trenton to be added. This can usually be sorted within the day.
