Remote Filesystem Access

The networked filesystem can be accessed from an unsupported system using the SMB protocol. You must connect from a computer on the self managed network or while connected to the VPN (you will need to use the "gateall" VPN configuration).

Server Information

The CS filesystem shares can be accessed by connecting to files.brown.edu and logging in with your Brown account username and password.

Available Shares

The server provides a share for some volumes listed on the filesystem page:
