# Accessing the AFS from home
CRI's AFS is accessible from outside the school's network using the SSH Gate.
## Setup
Add the following to your SSH config (`~/.ssh/config`):
GSSAPIAuthentication yes
GSSAPIDelegateCredentials yes
## Procedure
Run `kinit -f login@CRI.EPITA.FR` (replace `login` with your login) and type in
your CRI password when asked.
If you are using a SSH agent, make sure to disable it temporarly in your current
shell. This can be done by running `unset SSH_AUTH_SOCK`.
## Browse interactively your AFS
Run `sftp`, a SFTP prompt should show up. You can refer
to the `sftp(1)` man page to get familiar with the tool.
If your login is `login`, your files are located in
$ sftp
Connected to
sftp> cd /afs/
sftp> ls -la
drwxr-xr-x 3 marin.hannache 8000 2048 Sep 14 05:55 .
drwxrwxrwx 3 marin.hannache 8000 2048 Sep 14 2017 ..
drwxr-xr-x 9 marin.hannache 8000 2048 Oct 29 23:55 .confs
If you get a `Permission denied` error when trying to access to your files, you
very likely made a mistake in your setup. Make sure you did not connect using
your SSH Agent or through your SSH keys.
## Mounting the AFS
You can also mount the AFS to your Linux system (or the CRI VM) in a very
similar way as it is done at school.
This can be done using the following commands:
$ mkdir -p afs
$ sshfs -o reconnect afs
!!! warning
The files will not be accessible after the Kerberos ticket expires (usually
after a few days). If this happens, ask for a new ticket by running
`kinit -f login@CRI.EPITA.FR` and unmount the afs folder by running
`umount afs/`. You can then mount it again with the same `sshfs` command as
