Connecting to NTM from Windows

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

When connecting to Vault from off-campus, you must have access to Secure SSL VPN  before following the directions below.

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.

To learn how to connect to these file servers, choose your version of Windows from the list below:

You can also add colleagues to folders you administer on NTM.


 
Connecting to file servers in Windows 7
1. In the Start menu, type \\ followed by the name of the server to which you want to connect (e.g., \\ntm.wellesley.edu  or \\vault.wellesley.edu) in the search box and press Enter.
If you receive an error message after entering your Domain Account information in the step below, try these directions again, but use \\149.130.13.186 for NTM or \\149.130.71.42 for Vault instead. If you receive an error message after trying that, please contact the Help Desk for assistance.
 
2. When the Connect to ... window appears, in the first field, type wellesley\ followed by your Domain user name (e.g., wellesley\myuserna) and in the second field, enter your Domain Account password. Click OK.  NOTE: To preserve the security of your account, do not check Remember my password.
On computers where you login to Windows with your Domain Account (most College-owned desktop computers), Windows will automatically use that Domain Account as the credentials to access NTM or Vault, so you will not be prompted for login information.  If you wish to use different login credentials, please login to the computer as that user or contact the Help Desk for advanced instructions.
