NEXIS PC Instructions

The Marquette Wire NEXIS Gateway server provides file-level access to workspaces in the College of Communication’s Avid NEXIS (formerly ISIS) storage system. This cannot be used for video editing but is sufficient to sustain most other types of needs. It can be accessed from outside Marquette’s network using these steps when the Marquette VPN is utilized. Macs and PCs are able to connect. This page will outline connecting from a PC.
