Mapping the H: Drive Manually on a Mac

For students who are participating in WIRED, a custom login has been written to map the H: drive for Windows users. Please visit the WIRED Home Page for more information.

  1. From the Finder, hit Command+K

  2. In the Server Address field, type the following: cifs://{server}{group}/{username} with {server}, {group}, and {username} corresponding to your own personal user information based on the criteria below:

    If your username begins with:
    A - H
    Replace {server} below with Home10 and {group} with A-H
    I - L
    Replace {server} below with Home11 and {group} with I-L
    M - Z
    Replace {server} below with Home12 and {group} with M-Z

    Example: If your username is skx9, the {server} is Home12 and {group} is M-Z, so the sever address would be cifs://
