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
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.
