Here’s the steps to connect to the public drive via mac:

  • Open Finder then hit Command (⌘) + K
  • Enter this in the Server Address: “smb://$” (to make your life easier, click the + button next to the server address in order to save it in your list of favorites list)
    • for your department folder: “smb://$
    • for your personal folder: “smb://$/yourUsername
  • Click the Connect button.
  • It will prompt you to login. Login with your normal account username and password. (for staff and faculty, should be FirstinitialLastname and your normal password)

If problems, check and confirm that you are connected to Ethernet or OKWUSF Wi-Fi.

NOTE: Click the “+” to add it to the “Favorite Serves.” From here on out, it will be remembered in the “Favorite Servers” section of that box. Connect by clicking.
