Remote Access to CedarNet: Mac OS

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 directly.

Connect to your H Drive Directly

  1. From your desktop "Finder" toolbar, click [Go] > 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 a type of tree (e.g. pine, teak, oak etc.).
  3. Login with your CedarNet name and password > Click [Connect].
  4. From the volumes list, select "DATA" > Click [OK]. Your H drive should now appear in the sidebar of your Finder browser. 

Connect to the T Drive Directly

  1. From your desktop "Finder" toolbar, click [Go] > 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 [ + ] icon > From the "Favorite Servers" list, select "sequoia". 
    • If you have connected to the server before, from the "Favorite Servers" list, select "sequoia".
  3. Click [Connect].
  4. Login with your CedarNet name and password > Click [Connect].
  5. From the volumes list, select "PROJ" > Click [OK]. The T drive should now appear in the sidebar of your Finder browser. 

Connect to the S Drive Directly

  1. From your desktop "Finder" toolbar, click [Go] > 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 [ + ] icon > From the "Favorite Servers" list, select "sequoia". 
    • If you have connected to the server before, from the "Favorite Servers" list, select "sequoia".
  3. Click [Connect].
  4. Login with your CedarNet name and password > Click [Connect].
  5. From the volumes list, select "DEPT" > Click [OK]. The S drive should now appear in the sidebar of your Finder browser. 

Disconnect from a Network Drive

  1. In the left-hand column of your Finder browser, find the drive you want to disconnect.
  2. Click the [Eject] icon (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.
