Need to get to a file stored on the network from off-campus? Never fear!

Before you begin:

  • For faculty/staff workstations, if you are on campus, try logging off and back on again to reset your automatic server connections.
  • If you are off-campus, you must have a working VPN connection first. If needed, follow the steps in Setting Up A VPN Connection. A high-speed cable or DSL internet connection is required.
