How to access network drives off campus using VPN if Z and Y drives aren’t working properly

First, make sure you are connected to the VPN.  If you haven't installed it yet, learn how to do that here: https://mines.teamdynamix.com/TDClient/KB/ArticleDet?ID=70086.

After you've connected to the VPN:

Windows users:

Right click the Desktop then New > Shortcut.

For your Z: drive, type the location \\hornet.mines.edu\users\[first_letter_of_your_username]\[username] and click Next.  (Example: if your username is 'boredigger', your location would be \\hornet.mines.edu\users\b\boredigger).

Type Z-Drive for the name and click Finish.

If you are using a personally owned computer or logging in to a Mines owned computer with a local account, you need to authenticate with your ADIT\username account.

For your Y: drive, type the location \\files.mines.edu\shared and click Next.

Type Y-Drive for the name and click Finish.

If you are using a personally owned computer or logging in to a Mines owned computer with a local account, you need to authenticate with your ADIT\username account.

The shortcut(s) will be on our desktop to double click and open in File Explorer

macOS users:

Open Finder.

On the menu, click Go > Connect to Server....
