We have a need to share some documents among many people - all MIT people - but I don't want to give them access to a folder on our service. Does MIT have any sort of service that will allow sharing of files easily?
You can set up a directory in an AFS (Athena) locker to be viewable via http://web.mit.edu, only to particular people (either via a list of usernames or a moira group), authenticating via their MIT Certificates - instructions on doing so are here:
Another alternative is a wiki on http://wikis.mit.edu, which you can also configure the permissions of, to give permissions to a list of email addresses (including non-MIT users, via Touchstone) or a moira group.
You can sign up for a wiki here:
|If you have questions about either of these options, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org and we'd be happy to help you.|
