The CEFNS server

You can store and access data on the CEFNS server through the campus network and via the internet.

There are two mathematics and statistics directories on this server:

  • classes—contains materials for use in courses, as provided by faculty
  • faculty—a private storage area for use by faculty and staff only

How to connect

  • Go to my computer.
  • Find the drive you would like to access.

Through a wired connection on campus

Using a Microsoft Windows computer: 

  • Open my computer and type \\cefnsshares into the address bar.
  • Open the Math folder.

If your computer is not on the domain:

Using an OSX computer 

  • On the Finder menu bar, click Go, then Connect to Server.
