Accessing Etna Collaborative File Shares
Access Etna from On Campus:
All students, Faculty and staff can gain access to their Etna | Scholarship and Etna | Classes directories from any computer on the Bates network (except library kiosks). However, the resource will not show up as a network drive (think China or Belfast). Users must make a connection manually. Fortunately, this is easy to do.

Access Etna from Off Campus:
Etna can be reached from off campus using either of two virtual personal network (VPN) options. These connections provide a secure connection between your computer and the Bates network.
Option 1 is a browser-based VPN solution that is very convenient for gaining access to Etna. Navigate to https://myvpn.bates.edu/ and enter your Bates username and password to connect.
Option 2 is a client solution that is administered by ILS through the Help Desk. Please contact that office (via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone at 786-8222) to have the VPN client installed on your computer. They will provide instructions on how to connect to the Bates network during the install process.
