Technology Remote Access
Many of the College's network resources are now available from off-campus, so you can stay connected from anywhere on the Internet. This page offers information on the most-requested services. If you need access to something but don't see it on the list, contact the Help Desk for assistance.
Off-Campus Access to Network File Servers
You can now access files stored on Tuttle and Wilson from anywhere on the Internet. The procedure for this varies slightly based on the type of computer you have. Click on an operating system below for specific instructions.
- Windows XP
- Macintosh OS X
- Deskview Option:
You should be able to access programs and your files using the Deskview option.
Off-Campus Access to Email
The easiest way to check and send email while off campus is with Outlook Web App (WebMail). Click here to get started.
Off-Campus Access to Canvas
As a web-based product, you can use Moodle from off campus just as you do when at Wabash. Connect to the My Bash page and click the Canvas link in the menu to the right.
Off-Campus Access to Library Databases
Wabash maintains a proxy server that provides secure access to many library resources while off campus. See this library web page for more information.
Off-Campus Access to Datatel
It is possible to connect to Datatel from off campus, but for security purposes you must install additional software on your home computer. You should be able to access that program and your files using the Deskview option (https://deskview.wabash.edu/). You will need to use Internet Explorer (PC), as Deskview will not work in Firefox (unless you have the IE tab installed). Safari on Macs will work.
- Once you have Internet Explorer open, please type the following address: https://deskview.wabash.edu/
- Once that page has loaded, you will be directed to enter your Wabash username & password
- Download the software (first time only)
- Select the Wabash Staff option, and a blue screen will appear (please wait a minute or two for the desktop to load). Once the desktop loads, you will see the Datatel icon.
