NTM

The two main file servers on campus are NTM, for non-secure files, and Vault, for secure files. 

To access files on either server you must have a Wellesley College Domain Account, and have permission to access the folder. 

When connecting to Vault, you must also have access to and login through either the Admin Firewall while on-campus, or the Secure SSL VPN while off-campus before following the directions below.

When connecting to NTM from off-campus, you must first login to the SSL VPN.

To request a shared folder on NTM or Vault, please fill out this form.  Most departments already have shared folder on NTM, and many do on Vault.  Please ask the Administrative Assistant of your department if you aren't sure.
