Working remotely but not sure how to access your work related files or email? Visiting another school and need network access? Here are some tools you may need or want to use when working away from HLS:
- VPN – VPN allows you to connect to the HLS network in a secure manner so that you can access files on the HLS network drives, connect to Virtual Desktop, and access some Harvard applications. See Setting up VPN with Two-Step Verification for information on how to access and setup VPN on your home computer.
- Remotely Conference into Meetings – All HLS faculty and staff have Harvard Zoom accounts. Please see Zoom Professional Accounts for Video Conferencing for information on how to access your account and use Zoom.
- Wireless Network Connectivity at other Higher Ed Institutions – If you are visiting another higher ed institution that is also a member of eduroam, you can access their secure wireless network. See the eduroam Wireless Service page for more information.
This information can also be found in the ITS Knowledge Base on the IT Tools for Working Remotely page. You can also find information on these pages: Working Remotely Checklist and Preparing to teach and learn remotely at HLS.
