Installing UiO linux(es) on Dell Laptops

The BIOS must be configured in a specific way to PXE boot UiO Linux

Accessing file shares from remote

When accessing file shares via CIFS/SMB from outside of NCMM, we recommend tunneling the connection through SSH. For example, for biotin2:

  • ssh -L 10139:localhost:139
  • connect to smb://localhost:10139 (for example, in macOS via "Connect to Server"), enter your login and password and select the correct network share

Instead of port 10139 you can use any other port in the range of 1024-65535.
