Accessing files remotely

Remote file access services provide simple, internet-based access to files stored on RMIT file servers via a standard web browser.

Files can be copied and moved between the internet-based computer and the RMIT network. Files can also be renamed, deleted, read and modified on the RMIT file servers.

Access to remote file access services is available seven days a week but is subject to RMIT maintenance schedules and security policies.
