This service allows you to access files on Middfiles and Miisfiles <u>without </u>the need for VPN.&nbsp; You can easily view, download, and upload files.&nbsp; Visit [http://go.middlebury.edu/webaccess http://go.middlebury.edu/webaccess].

== Remote Desktop Access ==
 
 
 
Remote Desktop Access is used primarily by staff and faculty to gain access to a computer on campus, and should be used only when the computer is in a secure location.
 
 
 
These instructions show you how to access and use a computer that's on-campus, while you are physically off the college campus. For general information on remote desktop connections, see [[Remote_Desktop_Connection|Remote Desktop Connection]].
 
 
 
#Record the name of the computer, since you'll be using this to connect to it. The name can be obtained by right-clicking on "My Computer" and selecting "Properties", then clicking on the "Computer Name" tab.
 
#Ask the Helpdesk to add you to the list of users on that computer that's allowed to access it remotely. You can do this by calling x2200 or an email.
 
#Ensure the computer that remains on campus is turned on and is connected to the college's wired network. If the computer is off or not connected to the network at the time when you try to connect to it, you'll just see an error message.
 
#From an off-campus location, establish a VPN connection
 
#Open Microsoft's "Remote Desktop" program (Start => Programs => Accessories => Remote Desktop Connection
 
#In the window that appears, enter the name of the computer that's on campus
 
#Login with your own credentials. (If there's anyone else logged in, you will be prompted to "log this person off" which kicks them off the computer.)
