Connecting remotely to your desktop machine in the Law School will allow you to have access to your G: and H: drives, as well as all other University assets that are accessible from your usual desktop machine.  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 a 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 remote desktop client.  We recommend the Microsoft Remote Desktop app, which can be downloaded from https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-server/remote/remote-desktop-services/clients/remote-desktop-clients

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

When prompted, enter your credentials as "ad\[NetID]" and your usual NetID password.
