Remote Access to CedarNet: Mac Desktops and Personal Computers

Before you start…

Whether you are on a university Mac desktop or connected to the network on your MacBook, you will have to follow these steps to connect to network drives. Because Macs operate differently than Windows machines, they connect to the network in a different way.

If you are using a wireless connection on your MacBook, you must be connected to the cu-secure network to connect to any of the network drives.

Connect to your H drive

  1. Click the [Go] Menu > Select "Connect to Server."
  2. In the "Server Address" box, type smb://name of your login server > Click [Connect]. The name of your login server will be some sort of tree name (for example, teak).
  3. Login with your CedarNet name and password > Click [Connect].
  4. Select yourservername.DATA >Click [OK].

Connect to the T drive

  1. Click the [Go] Menu > Select "Connect to Server."
  2. Choose the server you want to connect to:
    • If you have not connected to the server before, type "sequoia" in the Server Address bar. Click the + to add the server to your favorites.
    • If you have connected to the server before, select "sequoia" from the Favorite Servers menu.
  3. Click [Connect].
  4. Login with your CedarNet name and password > Click [Connect].
  5. Select "sequoia.PROJ" from the menu.

Connect to the S drive

  1. Click the [Go] Menu > Select "Connect to Server."
  2. Choose the server you want to connect to:
    • If you have not connected to the server before, type "sequoia" in the Server Address bar. Click the + to add the server to your favorites.
    • If you have connected to the server before, select "sequoia" from the Favorite Servers menu.
  3. Click [Connect].
  4. Login with your CedarNet name and password > Click [Connect].

Disconnect from a Network Drive

  1. In the left-hand column of Finder, find the drive you want to disconnect.
  2. Click the Eject button (a triangle with a bar below it) beside the drive.

It will take a few moments for the drive icon to disappear from Finder. Once it disappears, you are disconnected from that drive.
