In the Finder window, choose “All…” under SHARED (left-hand sidebar), then click on musictechxserve. Your local computer will attempt to connect to the server, but will most likely fail because it is using the wrong username and password. Click on the “Connect As…” button to enter your username and password. If musictechxserve does not appear in the list, then go to the “Go” menu at the top of the screen and select “connect to server.” Type in musictech.bsu.edu NOTE: This only works if you are on campus or have a VPN connection. For windows XP users see this blog entry. For Window Vista users see this blog entry. Plus, you might need the IP address if the musictech.bsu.edu address doesn’t work. See Jeff for the IP address.
Add your username and password. To change your password, select the action drop menu (looks like a gear).
Once connected, the finder window will display the folders in which you have permission to see. I would suggest storing your files in either the Desktop, Documents, Movies, Music, or Pictures folders because no one else has permission to see inside these folders.
To disconnect from the server. Choose from several different options. You can disconnect individual folders by clicking on the eject symbol next to the folder name. Or, click on the folder and choose eject from the Finder file menu. Or, press the Disconnect button. Or, click on the eject symbol next to the volume name in the sidebar (shown below left). Or, drag the connected volume to the trash on the dock. The trash can will turn into a giant eject symbol (shown below right).
