For FileZilla, Dreamweaver, and a Linux Shell, no remote directory need be named, because they will go to the home directory of the account automatically at login.

For access to an organizational web page, you will need to first have

  • a ruf unix account for your personal NetID. Log a ticket to request one if you do not already have one. (see )
  • your NetID was added to the Group for the organization account, on Again, log a ticket with that request )

For access to an organizational web page; but logging in with your personal NetID, you will need to specify the new path to the organizational account.  The root level directory is /ruf . When a user logins to their netid they will be in their account directory at  /rufhome/NetID

To access an organization-type account (typically on partition org-a) you would need to use the path:  /home/org-a/accountname/   Use this full path in your Filezilla or Dreamweaver setup too if you are logging in with your personal  NetID account but working on the organizational account.
