Additional information on mapping network drives:
When at home you can map a network drive to bridge or pyramid using the fully qualified domain name, bridge.ecn.purdue.edu.
When off-campus, you will need to connect to the Purdue VPN service before trying to map a network driver. See this ITaP webpage: http://www.itap.purdue.edu/connections/vpn/
If you have a class or special group account, map a drive using \\bridge.ecn\ce123. You might have to use the ip number instead of bridge.ecn in some cases. The IP number for bridge is 126.96.36.199.
