Mapping Drives


Mapping drives on Firestone:

On Windows:

Go to My computer
Tools -> Map Network Drive
Select Drive: H, or S, or alternate letter

For S drive (department shared folder)
Folder: \\firestone.bgm.bu.int\departmentdrivename
or
For H drive (personal drive, must include "$" after your BGM User ID)
Folder: \\firestone.bgm.bu.int\BGMuserID$

Make sure to click the box that says reconnect at log on.

In order to connect to Firestone from a computer that does not log on to BGM at startup, you must select the option to log on as a different user or use different credentials to connect, then provide the user name as BGM\BGMuserID in the login box.

On Mac OS X:

In the Finder, click on the Go menu, select Connect to Server.
Enter the address for the resource you wish to map.

Example:
firestone: smb://firestone.bgm.bu.int/BGMuserID$
firestone: smb://firestone.bgm.bu.int/departmentdrivename

Enter your network password when prompted (bgm\BGMuserID), or PODS log in.
A new icon should appear on the desktop. That is your mapped network drive.

From Off Campus:

Virtual Private Network (VPN) software allows access to campus-only resources from off-campus locations. The website http://ssl.binghamton.edu provides bookmarks to campus-only resources directly through the web page. To use a remote desktop application or to access an application or system that is restricted while you are off campus, install the Pulse Secure VPN client.

Pulse Secure can be installed by logging into http://ssl.binghamton.edu and clicking on the appropriate bookmark to download and install the desired version of Pulse Secure for your operating system (Windows 32 or 64 bit, Mac OS or Linux). The Pulse Secure ReadMe file contains installation and configuration instructions. Once it is installed, Pulse Secure will be listed in your programs and as a shortcut in the Windows System Tray or Mac Menu Bar. You do not need to access the SSL VPN web page each time you want to connect via VPN.
