Connecting to Lundquist network fileshares – Mapped Network Drives (M, O, and others)

Accessing Lundquist shared network drives has an additional layer of protection for off-campus access. Access to these resources is protected by a virtual private network (VPN) that makes sure the communication between your remote device and the campus is encrypted and secure. For communication to these resources to occur you first must connect to the campus network using the campus VPN service.

The product we use is: Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client.
Use the host address: uovpn.uoregon.edu  -  (other services may have a different vpn host address)

To begin:

  1. Make sure you have a connection to the internet from your location
  2. Make sure you are connected to uovpn.uoregon.edu using the Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client
     

Connecting Using Windows

If using a Lundquist provided computer, the network drives are typically mapped to your computer automatically. When away from campus the file shares are not available until an interent and vpn connection has been established, therefore the drives can't be mapped when it attempts to do so at startup. We have provided a tools to fix this.
