Remote File Access
Remote file access is now available over the web. You can now access files and folders stored on the College server from over the web. This will make backing up key files much easier. Make sure you have logged into your account in the Green Templeton College computer room at least once before attempting remote access. Please only back up work related files on the College server.
Make sure you do not delete or change the folders 'My Documents' and 'Desktop', these are important system folders.
To access your filestore remotely, open Internet Explorer. Select File - Open... Tick the 'Open as a Web Folder' box, and in the 'Open:' box type in https://jade.green.ox.ac.uk/username, where the word 'username' must be replaced with your Green Templeton computer room login name. Note that this is an https connection. Missing the https out will result in a 'Page not found' error.
You will be presented with a security alert about security certificates. Click Yes to proceed. You will then get a login box. Put in your Green Templeton computer room username and password. Windows 2000 users may also be asked for the domain - put Green in the box if prompted.
You should now get a list of the files in the root of your home directory (as is normally mapped to S:\ drive on the machines in the computer room). Problems with the login at this stage are most likely to do with username and password errors. Please contact the IT Department for assistance with this.
To stop persistent prompts for login information, windows will need to save your username and passwords. This will provide a small security risk, so isn't recommended.
