Access a Share from Off-Campus

This article applies to: Shared File Services


To access a share from off-campus, for example while traveling or from home, use the Virtual Private Network (VPN). The computer appears the same as any other on-campus computer. VPN authenticates your identity and affiliation with Cornell using your NetID and password, and then sends all Cornell-related traffic through an encrypted "tunnel" to campus. 

Data stored on Shared File Services is accessible to computers on the Ithaca campus networks (Cornell campus public & private networks).
