Is my home directory available as a network filesystem share?

Yes, your cluster home directory is available as a network filesystem share to which you can directly connect your own desktop or laptop. The technical protocol for this is called CIFS or Samba, so you will often hear us refer to it in that way. On Windows, this is also referred to as mapping a network drive, and on a Mac it is called connecting to a server.

In all cases, you need your RC username, password, server name, and path. Please see the Mounting Storage document for detailed information. (short link)
