SHSU Dial-in Modem Service Set to Retire 9/1

Due to rising cost and low usage, the SHSU modem service finally gets to retire this year. After September 1, 2011, dial-in modem services will no longer be offered by IT@Sam. If you are someone who uses the modem bank to access the internet, please locate a service provider in your area that will meet your needs. The IT@Sam Service Desk can give you suggestions for alternatives to dial-in Internet service if needed, just give us a call at 4-HELP.

New Method to Connect to Department Websites

As a result of recent upgrades and system improvements, the way you connect to your department website accounts has changed. As of June 10, connections to your departmental website account hosted on unx1.shsu.edu are now created by mapping a local drive to \\unx1\department website username (for example \\unx1\ucs_www). If you currently have your Dreamweaver or Contribute software set up as FTP or SFTP, your connection will need to be reset.

How to Connect the U Drive:

  • Go to the Start menu and select the My Computer.
