Connecting to Chemistryfs3 (or another server) in Linux

This guide assumes a small but significant understanding of Linux operations and commands. The process of connecting to file servers varies greatly between distributions of Linux and on the desktop environment that is running. The basics of connecting will be detailed, but the specifics of connecting for each combination is not documentable. If you need help, you can email comphelp or stop by the comphelp office.
