Mapping Network Drives

To connect to the EMU network and NT shares from a campus wireless connection or from off campus, AnyConnect VPN software needs to be installed. Once installed and connected to the EMU network, AnyConnect VPN Client can connect to EMU NT Shares (also known as common, W, or shared drive) from home. Instructions for connecting Windows and Mac computers to the shared drives are available below.

If you are on the wired administrative network on campus, the shares should be connected when you log into the computer. If they do not appear when the computer is rebooted, follow the directions below.
