Remote Access to Law School Services: Hurricane Sandy: Winter Storm Juno

Posted by Frantz Merine on January 26th, 2015 :: Filed under Information Technology  
Comments: Comments Off

With the threat of Winter Storm Juno upon us and the increased possibility of working from a remote location; it would be timely to remind you of the ways you can connect to your networked files, email, and library resources from a remote location.

There is detailed information on the IT web site (http://web.law.columbia.edu/information-technology/how-guides/how-do-i-access-law-school-network-remotely) and of course the IT helpdesk (212.854.1370) is prepared to answer your questions; however we just wanted to briefly highlight some service offerings in this area.

Remote access to email

To access LionMail, please visit http://lionmail.columbia.edu and enter your UNI login and password combination.

Remote access to your G:  & H: drives

To access your networked files, please visit  https://remote.law.columbia.edu and enter your CLS username and password. You will see the contents of your H: drive. The folder named Groups will give you access to your G: drive. There are other ways to access your files, including VPN (virtual private networking) and FTP (file transfer protocol). The web browser method is the easiest by far; but if you prefer or need other ways to access filesremotely, please call the helpdesk.

Electronic Resources and Remote Access

The Law Library’s Electronic Resources page provides access to a broad range of U.S. and foreign indices, looseleafs, e-journals, and databases.  In addition, a wide range of web-based resources is available through the University Libraries’ electronic resources page.

Remote access to law databases can be accomplished by selecting the link marked “access from offsite” beneath each listed database on our electronic resources page.  The system will prompt you to enter your lawschool username and associated password (i.e. the same username and password used to access Lawnet and other law school services). Databases maintained by the University Libraries can also be accessedremotely.  See their  FAQ page for details.  Feel free to call the reference desk (854-3743) if you have any questions.

Please be aware of fraudulent emails entering your Inbox.

As the start of the spring semester approaches, you can expect to see a slight increase in fraudulent emails entering your inbox.  Although an exceedingly large number of these messages are blocked at the University’s email gateway, a few of them do enter your Inbox.

Many of these emails are cleverly written messages that attempt to retrieve personally identifiable information such as bank accounts, usernames, passwords, credit card details, etc…..by masquerading as a Columbia University site, a trustworthy organization, or business.

A recent example of this attempt is an email purporting to be the IT help desk and asking you to sign into a temporary login page powered by jimdo.Do.

You may consider any email asking you for the following information , but not limited to as fraudulent:

  • user name and/or password (for _any_ kind of account)
  • mailing address
  • social security number
  • banking account number
  • credit card number

Please continue to ignore and delete emails like these, and do not respond or click on their attachments or links. Emails of these types are hoaxes and will attempt to install malicious software on your computer or misuse your identity.

Columbia Law School’s desktops are protected by antiviral software, however you may want to download a copy of antivirus software for computers you may use away from the Law School. Columbia  Faculty and Staff  are eligible (UNI required) to download a free copy of antivirus software from http://www.columbia.edu/acis/software/nav

If you have any questions or concerns regarding this matter, please feel free to contact us at your convenience.
