Connecting remotely to your desktop machine in the BBI will allow you to have access to your G: and H: drives, as well as all other University assets.  This is a two-step process:  You must first run a VPN (either SURA for PCs, or the Mac VPN), and then connect to your machine.

VPN (Virtual Private Network)

To connect remotely, a user must first connect to the University's virtual private network (VPN).  The VPN will ensure the security of your connection.

Information on setting up University VPNs can be found on ITS's Answers page: SURA and Mac VPN

Connecting

After connecting to the SU VPN, open your preferred remote desktop client.  We recommend the Microsoft Remote Desktop app, available for Windows and Mac PCs.

Create a new PC connection.

Enter the address for the virtual machine cluster: "law-bbivmclust.syr.edu"

When prompted, enter your credentials as "ad\[NetID]" and your usual NetID password.  Take note of the orientation of the "\".
