To connect to your network drives on a Macintosh
- You must be using OSX or higher, Mac OS9 will not work.
- You must have logged into (at any point in time prior to this) a law school computer and have changed your password. This password shouldn't be confused with your NetID password.
- You must be in the finder. To switch to the finder, click once on the finder
icon in the dock.
- Either press and hold the Cmd key while pressing the K key (then release
both) or go to the Go Menu and click the bottom option Connect to Server
- The first time you get to the Connect to Server menu, you'll need to type in the server address. After the first time, the window will automatically contain the necessary info. If you have more than one network drive that you wish to connect to, click the + next to the server address to store it. (CLICK HERE for the various network drive addresses.)
- "your_user_account" for John Doe could be one of the following:
- 07_doej1- John is a student graduating in 07
- doej1- Jon is a staff member
- 903xxxxxxx- John is a student and his account uses his UW issued student ID (found on his student ID card.)
- More than llikely, the user account will be one of the later 2 - the numeric or the doej1.
- If you are unsure of your user account or password, go to the computer lab in the library with a photo ID and the assistant there will help you figure it out.
- The Workgroup/Domain must be set to uwlaw.
- The username is your Law School Network ID (formatted either namu1, 05_namu1, or it's your UW ID number found on your student ID.)
- The password is the password for your Law School Network ID.
A network disk icon will appear on your desktop, it will have the same name as you used for your Username.
