Mapping a Drive (Windows)
- If you work with sensitive or confidential data, you will need to connect to Phoenix with a secure, encrypted University-owned computer.
- Make sure you’ve logged into the Georgetown network with your laptop computer at least once in your office using a wired (Ethernet) connection before you attempt to map a Phoenix drive from home. Otherwise, you may receive the message The system cannot log you on now because the domain GEORGETOWN is not available.
- Log in to Georgetown AnyConnect. (Note: Perform an Update Site in Georgetown AnyConnect if you have any problems logging in.)
However, if you are using a Mac computer, you will need to log in using the Cisco AnyConnect VPN Client.
- Double-click on the My Computer icon located on your Desktop. (If the icon isn’t on your Desktop, click on the Start menu and then select My Computer.)
Note: If you’ve mapped the Phoenix drive previously, just open Windows Explorer and then select from the Folders list the Phoenix drive you want to access.
- In My Computer, select Map Network Drive from the Tools menu.
- In the Folder text area of the Map Network Drive window, enter the Phoenix drive you want to map in the format \\phoenix\efs# (where “#” is the Phoenix drive number you want to map).
Note: If you’ve previously mapped a Phoenix drive, you can select the drive from the Folder drop-down menu.
- Click on the Finish button. A window similar to Windows Explorer should be displayed showing the Phoenix drive you mapped. (In the example below, “efs6” is the Phoenix drive being shown.)
