Network Drive Home Access

Page history last edited by Anthony Worsham 2 years, 4 months ago

To access your network drives from home, you need to use a VPN. As Wikipedia explains, "A virtual private network (VPN) extends a private network across a public network, and enables users to send and receive data across shared or public networks as if their computing devices were directly connected to the private network. ... VPNs may allow employees to securely access a corporate intranet while located outside the office." The required steps are:


  1. Download the VPN
  2. Start the VPN
  3. Map your drives


OB/GYN has made a guide for Windows users.


Download the VPN

Instructions on how to do this are available at http://unmmg.org/VPN%20Instructions%20-%20MG%20Intranet.docx.


Start the VPN


Navigate to the VPN client by going to Start -> All Programs -> Cisco -> AnyConnectSecure Mobility Client. In the empty box, type hscvpn.health.unm.edu and select “Connect”. You will be prompted for your HSC login credentials. Please be sure to change the group to hsc-unm before entering your username and password.


Map your drives

For this step, you will need to write down the path to the network drive, which appears in parenthesis just before the drive letter in Windows Explorer.
