Connecting to your home directory from a Mac from off campus

The simpler method to access your home directory (Z: drive) from off-campus is to use an SFTP client like Cyberduck. This will allow you to easily transfer files between your account to your local computer. While a free version of Cyberduck is available online, users are cautioned to be mindful to download Cyberduck from a reputable source, as the source code is readily available online and can thus be easily modified and made vunerable. A version is also available through the Mac App Store as a paid app. We recommend the paid app store version as it ensures the source as reputable.

To actually mount your files from an off-campus account you will need to configure a VPN client and then follow the instructions on mounting your drive from on campus. Both of these topics are discussed in other sections of this FAQ.
