What are AugNet folders?

All Augsburg students, faculty and staff are provided with an "AugNet folder".  This folder is a space on the campus network available to store your files.  Your AugNet folder is easily accessible both on and off campus via the Internet.  Your folder contains private space for your files, a 'public' folder for sharing files with Augsburg community members, and a 'www' folder for publishing a personal web site. 

There are a few different ways to access your folder and public folders of other Augsburg community members.

Connecting to AugNet folders from Campus Windows Computers or through RemoteLab

  1. When you log in to a Windows computer on campus or access RemoteLab from your home computer, you should see an icon on the desktop for My Network Storage.  This is a shortcut to your own Augnet folder and opening it will access the space.
