Windows workstations for faculty and staff that are managed by ITS have Direct Access (DA) enabled on them. DA allows you to access network resources, such as the P: and Q: drives, while off the UConn network.
How to see if you have DA on your workstation.
- Click the network utility icon in your task bar.
- If you see ITS Direct Access System, it is enabled on your workstation. You do not need to take any actions to have the secure connection to on-campus resources.
If you are not able to connect to UConn resources this way, you can connect to the University network through the virtual private network (VPN).
