The university provides several opportunities to access your university workstation from home.
Remote access to your files
A common program to transfer files to other servers (such as the VU-server that contains all your files), is FileZilla. With this program you can easily transfer files from home to your VU-account. First you will have to download the FileZilla client. Once FileZilla has started, you can click at the top on ‘Site Manager’ (CTRL + S). Add a new site here with the following information:
- Host: sftp.data.vu.nl
- Protocol: SFTP – SSH File Transfer Protocol
Select a way of logging in (normal), fill in your VU login details and click on connect. Now you can easily drag files to and from your VU-account.
It is possible to use the VU to access the VU library and libraries around the world from home. In order to do so it is important to use either LibSearch http://vu.on.worldcat.org/ or to install a bookmark for more information go to http://www.ub.vu.nl/en/facilities/off-campus-access/index.aspx
