Please note that mapping/mounting is currently unavailable. We’re working with our storage vendor to try to restore this option, but for now, please use a Secure FTP (SFTP) to transfer data to/from BisonNet.
You can map a drive to (Windows) or mount (Mac/Linux) your HPC space that allows you to transfer files between that space and your local computer. Note that you have to be on campus or on the VPN (if off campus) to use these instructions.
