    .ads.iu.edu\users\jdoe (If you wish to map your network drive from home first connect to your VPN before attempting to map the drive. On campus you may shorten the drive name to ||ko-filesrv\users\username.)

  3. Click Finish and wait a few seconds.

  4. You will now be able to save your files to your network folder.
