Just run the MapPSUSpace installer and restart, it takes care of the rest. You will need to restart your computer after installing to complete the installation.

Note: your computer's clock must be set to the correct time (within a half minute or so) for authentication to work with Penn State's system.

Connecting to your UDrive and PASS Space

You will need to connect to the Penn State VPN before you can connect to your UDrive and PASS space. If you're already connected to Wireless 1.0 on campus then you won't need to do any other steps with the VPN client. Otherwise, connect to the "ISP to PSU" network from the network list in the VPN client.

After connecting to the VPN, run the MapPSUSpace program. Type in your Access Account username and password and hit Connect to connect the drives. You can also choose to connect to only your PASS Space or UDrive. You can also connect to UBackup if needed.

You can now access your UDrive and PASS Space just like any other hard drive! Open up your Computer and then open up the drive you want to access.
