FOR STAFF: How do I access network drives from my personal laptop?

Q1. I’m a staff member and  I’ve brought my personal laptop to work –   can I access network drives, like my H: drive?
Yes!!    First, you need to make sure you are on the WDM-STAFF wireless network.

 

If you are using a Mac and want to connect to the network drives….

1.  Go > Connect to Server

2. To access the following drives, type…  

If your home school is elementary, and you want your H: drive,  type     smb://lrc-4/username$  (where username = your username)

If your home school is secondary, and you want your H: drive, type    smb://lrc-7/username$ (where username= your username)

If your home location is the LRC or Operations, and you want your H: drive, type   smb://lrc-1/username$ (where username = your username)

To access the K: drive,  type     smb://lrc-5/d-common$

To access the S: drive, type   smb://lrc-11/students$

 

3. Connect as registered users

User name is wdmschools\username (where username equals the user name that you use to log into school computers)

Password is the password that you use to log into school computers

Select the checkbox for “Remember this password”

 

Another option for Mac users:

For the H drive, you can type in..

smb://username:password@server/directory    Using this style will store the password and server information together.
