Connect to Your RaiderDrive in Mac OS X

Follow the steps below to connect to your RaiderDrive.

NOTE: If you are off the TTU campus or connected through a wired connection in the TTU residence halls, you will need to establish a TTUnet VPN connection before beginning these steps.

STEP 1: Click on the Finder icon in the Dock.


STEP 2: On the menu bar, click Go and then Connect to Server.


STEP 3: In the Connect to Server prompt that appears, type the path to your RaiderDrive and click Connect. Use the format smb://raiderdrive.tosm.ttu.edu/users/eRaider for the Server Address (where eRaider is your eRaider username).

NOTE: In Leopard (10.5) only, you must use the format smb://raiderdrive.tosm.ttu.edu:139/users/eRaider.


OPTIONAL: Click the plus (+) button to add the path to your Favorite Servers so you will not have to type the address in the future.

STEP 4: If you are prompted to sign in, choose Registered User and type your information as shown below. Then, click Connect.


Finder will now open a window for your RaiderDrive. You can now manage your files on your RaiderDrive just as you would manage files on your computer.
