Using the VPN connection
In order to be able to log in on the NT network, it is necessary that
the system is known to the Windows domain. For this, a computer
account is needed. For the application procedure for such a computer
account, please contact the Dienst ICT Information & Servicedesk
The use of "Split Tunneling" is strongly recommended if your VPN
connection is active all the time.
By default, the NT logon script is not executed, so the G: and S:
disks, for example, are not available. With the Windows "NET USE"
command, you can still gain access to these network disks.
- In the Start menu, select Run
- Type the command "net use g: \\campusfp1\s123456" and click OK
In this example, she server name "campusfp1" and the user name
"s123456" are used. You need to fill in your own details for these.
Please contact your local helpdesk for information about which server
name and user name you should use.
It is also possible to make the NT logon script execute. In order to
do this, you need to make the VPN connection before logging in on the
TUE domain. This will give you access to the network disks G: and S:,
among other things. You can do this as follows:
- When you have started your computer, after pressing
"CTRL-Alt-Delete", you will see the "Log On to Windows" window.
- In this window, enter your user name and password as usual.
- Click "Options >>", so the "Log on to:" box appears.
- In this "Log on to:" box, select TUE.
- Check the box in front of "Log on using dial-up connection".
- Click "OK"
- AT "Choose a network connection:", select the "VPN TUe" connection
- Click "Connect",
- At "Connect VPN TUe", fill in your user name and password and click
You will now log in the way you're used to at your university
