Accessing a specific shared drive or home drive on a Mac

VPN connection required

The following steps require you to first make a connection to the campus VPN if you are off-domain or off campus. (VPN instructions for Mac). Your Multidrive will only function while connected to the Internet with a working secure VPN connection.  If you disconnect from the Internet or wake your device from sleep, you will likely have to reconnect the VPN first before being able to access the Multidrive.

If you have problems with these instructions or need additional help, please contact IT at it-help@mtu.edu or call 906-487-1111.
