Access to Concordia's network drives are possible using an Apple computer. Accessing network drives on a Mac is not supported by the IT department, so not every feature may work the same as it does on a PC, but we will make our best effort to support you and get you up and running.
Please Note: Network Drives are not currently working on OS X Maverick (10.9).
Connecting to Network Drives
Using a Mac to connect to network drives is a little different than on a PC. You still need to use the CU VPN Client that is appropriate for your operating system only if you are connecting while off campus. Once you've downloaded and installed the correct VPN Client, then follow these steps:
1. If you are off campus, activate your VPN and connect to the CU network. Otherwise, skip to step 2.
2. Open Finder on your Mac and navigate to the Go menu, then to Connect to Server.
3. The Connect to Server dialog box will open. At the top, in the "Server Address" input box, type in one of the following commands to reach the appropriate network drive:
Clicking the + "Add" button will save the address for future use:
4. Click the Connect button when your information is correctly entered in the Server Address box. The network drive will either appear as a thumb-drive on your desktop, or open in a dialog box.
5. You will be asked for a password. Use your network username and password in the format listed below. Make sure you put NTDOM\ before your username.
6. Once that is done you will be connected successfully.
If you are having issues connecting to your Network Drives either on campus or off, please contact the Tech Center at firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule a remote session or for steps to troubleshoot. While accessing Network Drives on a Mac is not supported by Concordia ITS, the Tech Center will make a best effort attempt to resolve your issue.
