[FAQ for Windows Remote Access]
Mapping network drives of the SCCS Windows central servers
VPN users are able to map
drives to shares on the SCCS central servers (e.g., the home directory Z drive,
the groups directory V drive) with the instructions below. We recommend
that users store files on the central servers which are
and maintained. VPN users will not be able to map drives to
other Windows computers within the SLAC internal network (e.g., to your office Windows
computer) due to
security issues. Similar restrictions apply for VPN users in
connecting to other Windows computers. The
SLAC Citrix Farm can be used instead for these purposes. More information is available in
do remote users get access to SLAC Windows resources?'
Windows XP, Vista, and Windows 7: Right click 'My Computer' select 'Map Network Drive'.
If you have to manually map the drives, use the directions below, however the drives may be different when servers are migrated.
Remote systems can have many possible configurations making it impossible to give one solution that fits all. Here are some troubleshooting suggestions. If you have a suggestion that you think is worth sharing send it do firstname.lastname@example.org.
