Overview

This guide explains how to download software you ordered from the IT Shop (previously known as IDES or Stud-IDES).

Connecting to your IT Shop network share

  • To download your software you need to connect to your personal share from the IT Shop
  • It is important to include the "$" at the end of the paths mentioned below!
  • Access to the IT Shop is only possible from within the ETH network. If you're connecting from the outside you need to open a VPN connection to ETH before continuing.

Windows

  • Map a network drive to
    \\software.ethz.ch\<your_n.ethz-login>$

  • Enter your n.ethz password when prompted.

Linux

At the time access is available only by command line.

  • Make sure you have smbclient installed
  • Run the following command to connect, you will be prompted for your n.ethz password:
    smbclient -W d -U <your_n.ethz-login> -m SMB3 //software.ethz.ch/<your_n.ethz-login>$

If successful, you will get to the following prompt:

smb: \>

Copying data

Windows

As you mapped a share, standard operations with Explorer are possible. Simply select folders to copy, press CTRL+C and paste them into the local folder of your choice.

Linux

smbclient is used with commands similar to ftp. The commands you are most likely to use are:

  • ls to list directory contents

  • cd to change directories

  • get to download a file

  • quit to leave smbclient

Recursively downloading a folder:

  • Type recurse, press Enter

  • Type prompt OFF, press Enter

  • To copy a folder, type mget <folder_name>, press Enter

Possible problems with wireless-connections

If there are connection-problems to the share over the wireless-lan "ETH", it helps to use the wireless-lan "public" instead. Then login on the landing-page first, then connect to the share with one of the methods described above.
