Windows (On Campus/VPN?)

If your Windows computer is on the OSU network (either plugged into a network port at a building on campus, using the OSU wireless network, or using VPN from off-campus), you can mount your ONID home directory to your Windows computer. Follow these steps:

Note: These steps only work on Windows Vista or later

Windows Vista, 7:

Click on the Start menu and type in the search field, Run.

Windows 8/8.1:

Hold the Windows Key + R.

 

  1. In the Open: field, enter "\\onid-fs\username", where "username" is your ONID username (for example, smithj).

    NOTE: If you are off campus and using a VPN, you will need to use "\\onid-fs.onid.oregonstate.edu\username"

  2. Click OK.
  3. If Windows asks for a username to use, enter "ONID\username", where "username" is your ONID username. Enter your ONID password.
  4. You should now see a window with your ONID files appear.
