Methods to access network drives via Firepass
There are two ways to access network drives in Firepass. One is to map the drives to the local
computer using Network Access. The other is to open the network drives within the Firepass web
portal using Windows Files. If the Internet connection is slower (i.e Dial-up), the preferred
method would be Windows Files.
H: drive
- your personal drive.
This space is a secured work area accessible only by you.
You will be able to access it regardless to where you are, on or off campus, as long as
you have access to the Internet.
S: drive
- for COTC AutoCAD students only.
U: drive
- a common student drive.
Any files you save here will be accessible to all
other students.
This area is offered strictly as a convenience for students collaborating on
common projects.
Please use caution when using this drive.
All students have access to
the files and they can be added, edited, or deleted by any other student.
It is
recommended if you use this space for collaborative efforts, you should save any updated
versions of a file on your personal drive (H:) as well.
By doing so if someone
inadvertently alters or deletes the file you will still have another copy saved in your
secured personal drive (H:).
A.
Network Access
1.
After logging into Firepass, select the link under Network Access.
2.
If prompted to install
urxshost.cab
, select
Install
.
3.
After the install, a small window will pop up and will display the status of the connecting of
network drives.
A security alert will then pop up asking to accept the certificate, select
Yes
.
4.
Once the drives are connected, a yellow status box will appear in the lower right of the
screen. Close the status box.
5.
Minimize all browser windows and open My Computer to access the network drives. DO
NOT CLOSE THE BROWSER WINDOWS! Closing them may abruptly close access to the
network files.
6.
When done, open the browser window and select
Logout
in the upper right of the screen to
exit Firepass.
B.
Web Applications
1.
The web applications section lists several links to various web sites and services for your
convenience.
Additionally, a COTC student will have access to Campus Connect
through the VPN service.
Another important link is to a service that has previously been
limited in its functionality from an off-campus location.
This link is to the Newark
Campus Library.
By using the VPN link, you will have access to the library databases in
the same way you would if you were in the campus library.
This is a major step in
maximizing accessibility for our students remotely should they need to complete a
research assignment off the Newark Campus.
C.
Windows Files
1.
After logging into Firepass, select the drive to access under Windows Files.
As on
campus computers, H: is meant for your personal network files and U: is a student
common drive which all students have access.
2.
Once a drive link is selected, a two-pane window will open. The left pane displaying the
contents of the drive. The right pane displays several options including
uploading/downloading files and creating new folders.
3.
To open a file, click the file name. A new pane will display on the right, giving several
options including loading file in browser and saving to local computer. Left-click
Load
into browser
to open the file. To save the file, right-click
Load into browser
and select
Save Target As
.
4.
To return to main page, select
usernames’s home
in the top left-hand corner where
