Accessing Grants.gov Using Run Command (PC)

The following assumes that you are connected to the BUMC network, either directly or using VPN. If you are at home or on a non-configured BU machine, you MUST connect via VPN. In general we recommend using VPN while connected from ANY location, regardless of your configuration. Most importantly, if you are having any difficulties using the Run Command instructions below we recommend trying VPN before contacting us. Please see our VPN instructions for help with this process.
