Saving Work to the Spurgeon Server

Today you will learn how to connect to your own Spurgeon server account.

  1. Connect to the Spurgeon server
    1. In the menu bar, click Go and drop down to "Connect to Server"
    2. Make sure the server address is in the box:
    3. Click Connect
    4. Type in your login info:
      1. Name: FirstNameLastName 
      2. Password: Student ID#
        Server Account Icon

    5. Select the volumes you want to mount by clicking on your name. 
    6. A Finder window will open with your server account icon and you are now able to navigate to this folder to save your files.
    7. If you need to save to a teacher's public drop box, repeat steps 1-3 to connect again and select "teachers" and you will now be able to save to any teacher's public account folder.
A personal server account means:
  • You are the only person who has access to this account.
  • You are able to save your files in your own documents folder.
  • You are able to access your documents from any computer at Spurgeon. 
  • You are able to save files to another person's "public drop box" to share with them.
Let's log in, look around, and explore your server account:
Finder Icon
  • Click the Finder icon in the dock at the bottom of your screen.
  • Close the 2nd Finder window.
  • Click on your name.
  • Click on the Documents folder to find your documents.
  • Drag the "About Stacks" file into the trash...what does the message say?
  • What do you need to remember when you delete a file from the server?
  • Click on any teacher's name.
  • Navigate to their Public folder.
  • Navigate to their Drop Box...this is where you will drop your files for your teacher.
When you open a folder or a file, you will see a "window" of this on your desktop. You can move this window by dragging its title bar at the top of the window. You are also able to close this window by clicking on the red button; minimize the window (hide it in the dock) by clicking on the yellow button; or re-size the window by clicking on the green button. You are able to resize the window using the lower right hand size of the window and dragging it to the size you want.
