Map a network drive from File Explorer in Windows without having to look for it or type its network address each time.
1. Open File Explorer from the taskbar or the Start menu, or press the Windows logo key + E.
2. Select This PC from the left pane. Then, on the Computer tab, select Map network drive.
3. In the Drive list, select a drive letter. (Any available letter will do.)
4. In the Folder box, type the path of the folder or computer, or select Browse to find the folder or computer. To connect every time you log on to your PC, select the Reconnect at sign-in check box.
5. Select Finish.
Note: If you can't connect to a network drive or folder, the drive/computer you're trying to connect to might be turned off, or you might not have the correct permissions. Try contacting your network administrator.
To map network drives in Mac OS, do the following:
- On the finder menu bar, click GO > Connect To Server…
- Enter a network path in the Server Address: box.
- Example: smb://servername/sharename
- Click Connect
You can add the path to the list by clicking the (+) button. (This will save you from writing the path to the network drive next time you connect to network drives through Pulse Secure)
Congratulations! You are now connected to your network drive and folder.
- Note: If you are prompted to enter a password, select Registered User, and enter your FGCU Eagle Access ID and password.
- Select the folder you would like to connect to and Click OK.
- Once connected you will see the folder will open and an Icon appears on the desktop, which is the network drive that you are connected to
Note: When you disconnect from Pulse Secure the network drive will disappear and you will have to follow the above steps to connect back to the desired network drive and folder.
