    You can connect to your "Z" drive or "home directory" on ECES from on-campus or off-campus via an SMB connection.

    Off Campus

    To get access from off campus, you must first create a CU VPN connection.

    Directions and downloads are available from CU's Office of Information Technology:

    oit.colorado.edu/vpn

    Once this is completed, you can follow the directions for an on campus connection.

    On Campus

    Windows

    1. Find "My Computer" on the Desktop or in the Start Menu.
    2. Right-click on "My Computer" and choose "Map Network Drive".
    3. Choose an unused drive letter. It does not have to be "Z".
    4. In the "Folder:" field enter: \\eces.colorado.edu\[username] -- replace [username] with your ECES username.
    5. When prompted, enter your IDENTIKEY username and password to gain access.
    6. Because ECES is now a member of the CU Active Directory, you may need to enter your username in the following form:

      ad\username

      OR

      ad.colorado.edu\username

    Mac OS X

    1. In the Finder, choose "Go: Connect to Server".
    2. In the "Server Address" field, enter: smb://eces.colorado.edu/[username] -- replace [username] with your ECES username.
    3. Choose "Connect".
    4. When prompted, enter your IDENTIKEY username and password to gain access.

    Notes

    • Interactive access over DSL and Cable internet connections may be slow. In some cases, you may wish to make a local copy of your file to edit and then re-upload to ECES.

    • If you are unable to use the VPN software, you can still access your files from off campus via SSH and SCP:
