Download and Configure the Cisco AnyConnect VPN Client Software

In order to connect to the Lehigh network, and many of the resources on it from an off-campus computer, users need to install the Cisco AnyConnect VPN client. This software encrypts your device's network traffic, and allows it to pass through a 'tunnel' over the internet, and onto the Lehigh network, allowing a remote device to function as if it were on campus.

The steps below describe the process of downloading and installing the software onto 'desktop' computer operating systems -- they're the the same for Windows and Mac.

Create a Desktop Alias to a Network Storage Space in macOS

To make accessing your Network Storage Spaces (Personal or Departmental) as easy as it can be on a Mac, a desktop alias (shortcut) is very handy.  Follow the instructions below to create one.

Migrate Local Folders from Thunderbird to Lehigh Gmail

PLEASE NOTE: Lehigh does not support using Thunderbird to access your Gmail account for day-to-day use. This document is provided ONLY as a means of moving your Thunderbird Local folders up to the Lehigh Gmail account.

Some people store email messages locally, on the computer hard drive. In Thunderbird these folders are listed below the Lehigh account, under the heading "Local Folders." Depending on the number of folders, this process could take several hours or even longer. We advise migrating only those folders that you want to preserve for future use.

PaperCut Mobility Print

Mobility Print is a feature of PaperCut that lets you add LTS Public Site printers to your laptop, smartphone, and tablet just like a regular local printer.

IMPORTANT:

Auto-mount network drives (Mac)

Remember, your Mac must be connected to the Lehigh network when it starts, and your Lehigh account credentials must be saved for this connection to be made automatically.
