Nasuni Web Access is a new tool that provides access to Middfiles and Miisfiles without the need for a VPN connection.  Here are some basic instructions.  Please note that you cannot edit and save directly to files using this method; you should download your file(s) then upload the revised version.

  1. Visit http://go.middlebury.edu/webaccess.
     
  2. Login in with your Middlebury email address (username@middlebury.edu format) and password.  You will see the main server folders to which you have access, similar to the image shown here:

    RTENOTITLE
     
  3. Click on the desired server folder to open it, then click as needed on sub-folders to display their contents.  CLASSES and ORGS (for department shared folders) are the most commonly-used upper-level folders.
     
  4. Although you cannot work on files directly using Web Access, you can...
    • Click a file name to view it (for file types where a preview is available).
    • Click beside a file or folder name to select that entire row, then use the toolbar at top right to perform a variety of common tasks:

      RTENOTITLE - Download the selected file(s).

      RTENOTITLE - Get an internal link to share.

      RTENOTITLE - Delete the selected file(s).

      RTENOTITLE - View details about the selected file.
       
    • If you make changes to a file you downloaded, you can use the Upload Files button RTENOTITLEto store your new version.
    • You can also use the toolbar to perform general file management tasks:

      RTENOTITLE - Change the sorting order.

      RTENOTITLE - Add a new folder.
