Mounting /tigress, /projects and /scratch/gpfs to your local machine

/projects and /tigress

You can mount /tigress/<YourNetID> to your local machine by using this address:


For mounting /projects use this address:


For instance, if you are trying to mount /projects/ATURING then use:



Users can mount /scratch/gpfs for Della and Tiger using the following addresses.

Linux and Mac


On macOS creating the mount can be done by choosing "Go" > "Connect to Server ..." in the Finder menu. Then enter the address and choose "Connect". You will need to enter your Princeton NetID and password.





Other cases

tigress-cifs can only be used for /tigress and /projects as well as /scratch/gpfs for Della and Tiger. To mount /home/<YourNetID> or /scratch/gpfs/<YourNetID> for another cluster, you will need to use a tool like sshfs. For macOS we recommend FUSE for OSX. Once the software is installed, the mounting can be done by running the following commands on your local machine (e.g., laptop):

$ mkdir mymount
$ sshfs mymount
