Opening a Remote Access Account
Registration for a remote access account goes through the University Authority for Computation, Communication, and Information ( = the Computer Authority) on a page whose Web address is: http://rap.huji.ac.il

For further information
 , enter the Computer Authority’s website: https://ca.huji.ac.il and click on:  https://ca.huji.ac.il/book/חשבון-remote-access-ra

Connecting to the Internet
Creating a personal account and a password, allows access to the Remote Access service.
However, only partial access to university online services is available unless a special program is installed whose address is: https://samba.huji.ac.il/webvpn

Wireless Access to the Internet
The four campuses have several wireless networks:
HUJI guest – an open network available for guests but does not allow access to the university’s online resources.
HUJI-netX – a protected network available to students and faculty and allows access to the university’s online resources by identifying yourself by your username and password.
Eduroam – an international project that allows access to all universities by identifying yourself by your Hebrew University username and password.
HUJI-Dorm – a network that exists in some of the Hebrew University dormitories that allows access by identifying yourself by your username and password.

Personal Drive
Every student, faculty member, and staff member in the university who has an Active Directory account, also has a personal drive (known in Hebrew as Konan K).
The personal drive has only a limited space for memory: students have 500 MB and faculty have 5 GB.
However, the personal drive may be accessed from home.
To access the personal drive from home, one must enter a page whose address is: myfiles.huji.ac.il  and enter the username and password used for operating the university’s public computers.
You can place in your personal drive files from your personal computer and access them from university computers. Files loaded into the personal drive are backed up and allow the management of versions and therefore they should be stored in the current file drive.
