Connecting to and using the software library

In order to connect to the software server you must first be connected via ethernet/VPN to the network.

The software folder can then be accessed through drive mapping.

Drive mapping:

2. Right click Computer and click on Map Network Drive.
3. Select a drive letter, and type in one of the following:

For students, type \\yew\sl_students
For faculty and staff, type \\yew\sl_software

          and check "Connect using different credentials”. *We recommend you connect using a wired connection. If you do this, you won't need to connect using different credentials."

4. You may choose to leave "Reconnect at logon" checked if you plan to access the software library again.

5. In the new dialog box, type in conncoll\your username and your password. Click OK and then click Finish.
6. The software library will now appear as a network drive in "Computer."
