Juniper Network Connect for Macs (commonly used for remote access to the Mentor file server) is not compatible with OS X Mavericks, the latest Mac operating system. Instead, Mac users (OS 10.6 and above) should use Junos Pulse to connect to Mentor from off campus.

Instructions for installing and configuring Junos Pulse can be found in this guide:
