Remote Active Directory (AD)

Remote Active Directory (AD) maps your G, H and Y drives to your Windows computer. This enables staff to access files as you would normally from your office.

Note: this product is not compatible with Apple computers.

Note: Not all staff will have a Y: drive.

Your computer must be connected to a reasonably fast internet connection (such as NBN or ADSL) for this application to work effectively.

Remote AD has been successfully tested on standard Griffith staff Windows computers. It will usually—but not always—work on non-Griffith computers. Alternatively, staff may access G or H drive via network storage.
