Cyberduck – How to configure client for use with Duke University CIFS access


Question

How do I configure the Cyberduck client to access my CIFS account?

 

Answer 

To connect to your CIFS home directory or web space, your computer needs to be connected to the Duke network. If you are unable to connect to the Duke network, connect via the Virtual Private Network (VPN).

For instructions on how to do this: please read VPN instructions for Windows or VPN instructions for Mac
