Mapping network drives in the Mac OS

This document explains how to map network drives in the Mac OS

Mapping network drives/shares in the Mac OS

 

On Campus:

1. Go to Go -> Connect To Server

2. Enter in the share in this format smb://servername/share$ (ie smb://fpsa/compserv$) - Note the $ on the end

3. Click Connect


Off Campus (WebDAV):

1. Go to Go -> Connect To Server

2. Enter in the share in this format https://servername.uwgb.edu/share (ie https://fpsa.uwgb.edu/compserv) - Note there is NO $ on the end

3. Click Connect

4. Enter the full username (ie goldmanj@uwgb.edu) and the password when prompted

With newer versions of the MAC OS WebDav isnt always reliable. If they are interested in a third party tool that always works well ask them to take a look at transmit.
