Connecting to Network Resources

There are a number of methods to connect to the Engineering network, which will include access to the network drives (T:, U:, etc.). It's best to follow these steps in order.

Step 1: Connect to the Network

Step 2: Using DUO for Two-Factor Authentication

    Beginning April 25, 2018, connecting to CSU using Pulse Secure and will not only require you to log in with your eID and Password, but will also require you to verify your identify using a second factor device (your cell phone, a land line, or a hardware token).

  1. Download the Duo Mobile App to your smartphone. If you don’t have a smartphone or prefer not to use it for CSU business, you can skip this step.
  2. From your desktop or laptop computer, connect to the webpage and review the documentation and FAQs – especially if you travel or work internationally, or if you use Pulse Secure.
  3. Click on the "Sign Up/Modify Devices" button and follow the instructions to register your second device. If you don’t plan to use a smartphone, register your CSU desk phone. Alternatively, hardware tokens that you can carry with you are available for purchase through RamTech. To learn more, visit
  4. Return to the page and click on the "Test Your Account" button to make sure it all works.

    NOTE for Mac users: there is currently a bug with Macs communicating with the setup of your second factor device and the workaround is to go to to set this up with a Mac if you get a blank “second password” page.

Step 3: Create a Secure Connection with VPN

Step 4: Using Network Resources
