Creating VPN Bookmarks

Article ID: 247
Last updated: 09 Mar, 2015

IMPORTANT: Only the departments using the ITS Storage Area Network (SAN) have pre-created shortcuts in the VPN. Separate departmental servers such as facilities do not have shortcuts in the VPN. If you do not see your departmental sever you must create your own shortcut. The path to the share must be fully qualified (\\facilities4357.ec-admin.easternct.edu\sharename as opposed to \\facilities4357\sharename). Use the instructions below to create bookmarks.

To create VPN bookmarks:

  • Log in to ECSU's VPN. For login instructions see Article 8: VPN Login for Faculty and Staff and Article 192 VPN Login for Students.
  • Click on the Add Windows link at the top right corner of the bookmarks section.
  • Type the path or browse to the share you want to bookmark (departmental servers require the full path to be typed in as noted above).
  • Click the Bookmark Current Folder link on the top right of the page.
