This page is intended to help staff access the common IT systems from both on and off campus using a CDU or personal device.

Open All | Close All

Once you are connected to the Internet you need to connect your computer to the CDU network.

  • cduvpn.cdu.edu.au
    (for external access to the CDU network, mapping network drives etc)

This will connect your computer to the CDU network using the CDU VPN

To connect to your Network Drive follow the instructions below.

First make sure you are connected to the CDU Network via VPN (See Above)

In the Folder box type one of the locations listed below

    X: External enter \\storage.cdu.edu.au\staff\external

Note: "Reconnect at logon" will not work for external users because you login to the computer before the VPN connection is established. So it can't reconnect to something at login if it can't see it.


Step 4

Make sure you Select “Connect using a different user name” (this is because the computer you have logged into will have a different username and password than your CDU account.)
Type in “CDU-Staff\<username>  EG CDU-Staff\fsmith
Type in your computer password.
