Network connected drives
Many departments and staff use Network Attached Storage (NAS) to store departmental files for documentation and/or projects. To request access to a departmental shared drive, please have your department chair or secretary send a request on your behalf to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are requesting to have a new share drive created for yourself then simply make the request to the same email as above.
Cisco Anyconnect is a Virtual Private Network (VPN) client that allows you to securely connect to the LIU administrative network from off campus. In order to get VPN access, you must fill out a VPN access request form, as well as have your laptop wiped and encrypted for work use.
The University network provides inter-connectivity between all departmental and campus networks, and also provides connection between these networks and the Internet. This is accomplished by having a resilient high speed Gigabit Ethernet backbone that is supported by 6 Cisco® Catalyst® 6500 Series multi-layer modular switches. The backbone extends to all University buildings and provides access to and from Fast Ethernet segments. Users’ end nodes are connected at 10/100Mbs via a combination of Cisco Catalyst 6500, 4000 and 3500 access layer switches. A fiber optic Ethernet network interconnects the central computer configuration. We are currently multi-homed to the Internet by means of two Internet Service Providers (ISPs). The ISPs that we are using are Cogent and Cablevision Lightpath. They both provide us with a 100Mb link to the Internet. Our Internet-facing Cisco router includes a Cisco’s Firewall Services Module which provide advanced security services including firewalling capabilities.
