<h2 id="Activateyourencryptedfilesystem">Activate your encrypted filesystem</h2>
<p>
You can activate your encrypted filesystem by doing following these steps:
</p>
<ul><li>Point your web browser at the address of your <a href="?action=doc&page=CryptoBox&weblang=en">CryptoBox</a>. The default is <a class="ext-link" title="https://192.168.0.23" href="https://192.168.0.23">https://192.168.0.23</a>.
</li><li>Click on <i>Activation of encrypted data</i>. A new page asking for your crypto password appears.
</li><li>Enter your crypto password and click on the button below labeled <i>activate encrypted filesystem</i>.
</li></ul><p>
Now the filesystem is accessible. To use it, search for a computer in your network neighborhood. When asked for the name, enter the above IP address (default: 192.168.0.23). Now you can use it like any other network resource.
</p>
<h2 id="Useyourencrypteddata">Use your encrypted data</h2>
<h3 id="Linuxcommandline">Linux - command line</h3>
<p>
To use the encrypted data partition with regular user rights add the line below to your <i>/etc/fstab</i>:
</p>
<pre class="wiki">//192.168.0.23/public /mnt/ smbfs defaults,noexec,noauto,user,guest 0 0
</pre><p>
Now you can mount the encrypted data partition to /mnt:
</p>
<pre class="wiki">mount /mnt
</pre><p>
resp. unmount:
</p>
<pre class="wiki">smbumount /mnt
</pre><h3 id="Windows">Windows</h3>
<p>
Run the the Windows Explorer and choose <i>Map network drive</i> in the <i>Tools</i> menu:
</p>
<ul><li>select a drive of your choice
</li><li>enter <i>\\192.168.0.23\public</i> (default setting) as target
</li></ul><p>
<a href='/trac/cryptobox/file/trunk/www-data/screenshots/en_w98_network_drive.png' style='padding:0; border:none'><img src='/trac/cryptobox/file/trunk/www-data/screenshots/en_w98_network_drive.png?format=raw' alt="en_w98_network_drive.png" title="en_w98_network_drive.png" style="" /></a>
</p>
<p>
Now you can use your encrypted data like any other network resource.
</p>
<h2 id="Deactivateyourencryptedfilesystem">Deactivate your encrypted filesystem</h2>
<p>
You can deactivate the encrypted filesystem by clicking at <i>Deactivation of encrypted data</i> in the web interface of your <a href="?action=doc&page=CryptoBox&weblang=en">CryptoBox</a>.
</p>
<p>
Your data is now protected again.
</p>
<h2 id="ShutdownyourCryptoBox">Shut down your CryptoBox</h2>
<p>
Click at the <i>Shutdown</i> link in the menu of the web interface. There you can choose <i>poweroff</i> or <i>reboot</i>. The shutdown takes some seconds.
</p>
<p>
If the hardware of your <a href="?action=doc&page=CryptoBox&weblang=en">CryptoBox</a> is quite recent, it will power-off automatically. Otherwise you have to do it manually.
</p>
<h2 id="Incaseofemergency">In case of emergency</h2>
<p>
If you have to protect the drive really fast, just power-off the <a href="?action=doc&page=CryptoBox&weblang=en">CryptoBox</a> machine instantly by pulling the plug or pushing the power button. This is not very clean and can (in very rare circumstances) corrupt open files, but it is the fastest method to secure your data.

<h3 id="Linuxonlyrootcanunmount192168023public">Linux: only root can unmount //192.168.0.23/public</h3>
<p>
You can't unmount the partition with <i>umount</i>.
</p>
<p>
<strong>Solution:</strong> Use <i>smbumount</i> instead:
</p>
<pre class="wiki">smbumount /mnt
</pre><h3 id="LinuxOperationnotpermittedsmbmntfailed1">Linux: Operation not permitted / smbmnt failed: 1</h3>
<p>
The attempt to mount the partition as a regular user ends up with:
</p>
<pre class="wiki">cannot mount on /mnt/: Operation not permitted
smbmnt failed: 1
</pre><p>
<strong>Solution:</strong> Set the directory's owner to the same user that mounts the share (e.g. phil):
</p>
<pre class="wiki">chown phil. /mnt
