samba

You can have your unix account delivered to your office computer as a Windows share.

get this done for you:

smbpasswd -a jane
New SMB password:
Retype new SMB password:
Added user jane.

test from unix:

smbclient -U jane //localhost/jane
Enter jane's password: 
Domain=[PSYCH] OS=[Unix] Server=[Samba 4.1.3]
smb: \>

... where the -U jane is implicit if you've logged in to unix yourself. Try ls as a test.

test from your mac:

Finder -->
  command-K -->
    smb://jane@play.psych.mun.ca/jane

test from windows:

Computer -->
  Map Network Drive -->
    \\play.psych.mun.ca\jane

beware

The unix and samba passwords can [ will ! ] diverge.
