It is now possible to access Athena lockers on shmoo or habanero (Linux machines). This means that you can simply copy (instead of sftp/scp) files to and from your Athena home directory when you are logged in to either machine. Also, you can use any Athena software which runs on Linux by attaching an appropriate locker.

Here's what you need to do to attach a locker (in this example, locker is your Athena home directory):

1. Obtain Kerberos tickets

$ kinit mitusername

2. Obtain AFS tokens

$ aklog mitusername

3. Attach your Athena home directory (here lockername = mitusername)

$ afslocker lockername

Now your Athena home directory should be accessible at /mit/lockername
