You can access the Canadian Cadet Organizations (CCO) Network (for Fortress, Outlook Email, File Repository, etc)  via non-DND-issued computer.

Method 1:  Web Access

1. The recommended browser is Internet Explorer version 6 or higher.  

The Edge browser in Windows 10 is not supported.    Other browsers may work but compatibility is not guaranteed.

If you are using Chrome or Firefox, the IE Tab browser extension has been found to work very well (click here for Chrome version or here for Firefox version.)  Install the extension then right click the link below and choose “Open in IE Tab.”


2. >>> Click here for the CCO Net Web Access Page. <<<


3. Enter your CCO Net login credentials.

Your username must be entered as in the following example:


Make sure to use the backslash: \ not the normal forward slash: /

Then enter your password.


4. You will then see a page with the various CCO Net tools you have access to.

Click on the tool you want, eg FORTRESS. You will be prompted to enter your login credentials again. Enter your username the same way, eg:


and then enter your password.


 ***When you are done, be sure to logout from the main access page.***

For added security, delete your browsing history to clear all information out of your cached files.


Method 2:  Remote Desktop Access

Download the following Zip file, and unzip the RDP file to your PC.  Double click it to launch the Remote Desktop Prootocol Session.  Enter your user name and password per the above instructions

CCO Remote

NOTE:  When using the RDP access, you have no access to your local PC to be able to upload files to email, or download files to your local PC from email or from Fortress, the File Repository, etc.  The only way to get them to your local PC is to save them to your CCO documents folder, then email them to yourself at a personal address. If you will be working with a lot of files, it is recommended to use the web access version above.
