===Important information to know before using this guide===
+
-
* Before you can access a Network Drive on Windows Vista it needs to be [[Mapping A Network Drive|Mapped]] as a Local Drive. This means assigning it a Drive letter.<br>
+
-
* You'll need your [[Campus Domain Account]] Information as authentication.<br>
+
-
* After the Drive is mapped it will appear as a link under 'My Computer.'
+
-
* If you are <b>OFF CAMPUS</b> you must establish a VPN connection first before mapping a network drive.
+
-
** Directions for setting up VPN on Windows 7 can be found [http://www.stevens.edu/itwiki/w/index.php/VPN_on_Windows_7_-_Tunnel_All_Traffic here]

=== Step 3 - Click Map Network Drive ===

Towards the top of the window that just opened (the Computer) will be a link button labelled 'Map a Network Drive.' That's exactly what we want to do, so go ahead and click to open.

-
=== Step 4 - Enter the Drive Name ===
+
-
If you read the article on [[storage01]] then you will have an idea of what drives you can map. In this tutorial we will map the [[Storage01 ms|ms]] drive.

=== Step 5 - Use a different Username ===
+
-
If you read the article on [[Mapping A Network Drive]] then you may know that Stevens requires some authentication to access Network Drives. Unfortunately Windows Vista will default to trying to use your Windows log on name and password. This is not always the same as your [[Campus Domain Account]] name. So we need to tell Windows Vista to use your Campus Domain username and password.
+
-
 
+
-
To do this click the small text link 'different user name'<br>
+
-
<nowiki>* </nowiki>In Windows 7, check the box next to '''Connect using different credentials'''
+
-
 
+

+
-
 
+
-
=== Step 6 - Enter Campus Domain Information ===
+
-
To complete the mapping process just enter your Campus Domain user name and password.<br>
+
-
You must type '''campus\''' before your username, so if your username was ''jsmith'' you would type ''campus\jsmith''.<br>
+
-
For password simply enter your Campus Domain Password.
