Obtaining Software Kits from the Local Server
Instructions for a Linux System.
To access copies of software distribution kits on our local server from a Linux system you may do the following.
Create a temporary local directory to receive the kit and go to it:
Connect to the server using the interactive smbclient program:
smbclient //CSXP12.physics.ox.ac.uk/OxKits_xxxxxx --user="physics\yourusername"
( where xxxxxxx is the name of the package you want e.g. "MATLAB"
and yourusername is your Physics Windows username e.g. "bloggs" )
Switch off prompting.
smb: \> prompt
Enable copying of multiple files and folders.
smb: \> recurse
Use the dir and cd commands to see what's available and to navigate to what you want
smb: \> dir
smb: \> cd ddddddd
Copy all the files from the selected directory into the tempkit local directory:
smb: \> mget *
Exit the smbclient program:
smb: \> q
Make sure that you have selected the kit you require and have copied the complete kit into a local folder on your Linux system.
