How do I access CFS drives?

If you are connecting from off-campus, you will need to connect via VPN

Once you have logged in to the wireless network, you can use the NET USE command. Here are some examples. You will have to ask your local I.T. administrator for particulars about directory names, etc. Remember to use the /PERSISTENT:NO parameter on shared computers so that your drives will be removed after you log out. For personal computers, you can remove the /PERSISTENT:NO parameter and build a batch file to help simplify the process.

  • For the typical "G" or "Share" drive, use: NET USE G: \\north.cfs.uoguelph.ca\ /PERSISTENT:NO
  • For the typical "H" or "Home" drive, use: NET USE H: \\north.cfs.uoguelph.ca\\home\ /PERSISTENT:NO
