If you have a user
account at Warren Wilson, you have a 4Gb home directory that can be
accessed from any computer on campus. It holds a directory called
public_html in which you can store your personal
web pages. The rest of the directory is yours to fill as you choose.
Your home directory can be accessed from the campus network by
following the steps below.
- Click on the Start menu and select "Computer."
- Click on "Map network drive" which will open a new window.
- Select the drive letter you wish to use. We use M in the
labs, but you can choose a different one if you wish.
- By "Folder" enter \\raptor\homes in the box.
- If you want to make this connection every time select
"Reconnect at login."
- Click on "Finish."
- A Windows Security window will open, and here you enter
your logon ID and your password.
- You should now be connected to your home directory.
- Right click on My
Computer (in your Start Panel or on your desktop) and select Map
- In the labs we use
drive M:, and you can too (it is an arbitrary choice).
- For the path enter
\\raptor\homes and be sure to check the box for Reconnect at Logon.
- Enter your user name
and password when prompted.
- Every time your
computer starts, you will need to manually log on to your network
drive. Go to My Computer, double-click homes on Raptor (M:), and enter
your user name and password.
- If an error message
appears at the bottom-right of your screen at startup saying that a
network device could not be connected, don't worry. This just means
that you need to log on to your network drive to use it.
Macintosh OS X
- In the Finder, go to
the Go menu and select Connect to Server.
smb://raptor/homes in the box.
- A dialog box asking
for your username and password will appear.
- Enter your WWC user
name and password.
- A window will appear
showing the contents of your home directory.
