After installing the latest version of the VPN software, install the BU Network Drives tool.

  1. After installing this tool, there will be an icon on your Desktop named BU Network Drives.

  2. Launch the VPN and connect to Bucknell using your Bucknell username and password.

  3. Launch BU Network Drives and enter your Bucknell username and password on the page that appears. The page will then give you a list of successfully mapped drives.

TIP: You will need to connect to the VPN before you click on the Connect BU Network Drives shortcut.

TIP: If your goal is to connect to your department’s X drive, note that this will not be mapped. Go to the R drive, Departments, and navigate to your department. It is the same location – the “X drive” is simply a shortcut to your department’s space on the R drive.
