How do I connect to my Novell drives (U: and S:) from off-campus on a Denison laptop?
IMPORTANT: In order to connect to your Novell drives, you must be connected to Denison's network. If you are off-campus, you will have to first use Remote Access (see FAQ 1221).

To connect to your Novell drives on a Denison Windows computer:
  1. Click on the up arrow in the lower righthand corner of your screen by the flag.
  2. Right-click on the Red N in the box that appears.
  3. Select "Novell Login". A Novell Login window will appear.
  4. Enter your BigRedID and password and click "OK".*
  5. A window should appear showing your drives being mapped and then disappear.
  6. From the Windows Start menu, click "Computer". You should now see that your drives are mapped.

*If you get an error message saying the system cannot log you in, click the "OK" button in the message window and then click the "Advanced>>" button on the Novell login window. The values for the fields that appear should be...
  • Tree: EDU 
  • Context: employees.Denison for Faculty/Staff OR students.Denison for Students
  • Server: 

Please use the dropdown arrows to adjust the Tree or Context and enter the information for the server if needed.
