From a College-provided PC
Most College-provided PCs are preconfigured to connect to your file shares each time you login. Simply open the [File Explorer] and you can find them under [This PC]. If your shares are missing, we recommend you logoff and log back in, or simply reboot.
If the shares do not reconnect automatically after you’ve logged in, contact the Help Desk for assistance.
From any Mac
All College-provided Macs come preinstalled with SMBMapper; an application that upon login, will connect to your file shares.
If you are using your own Mac, you will first need to download SMBMapper:
With SMBMapper installed:
- Open the application. Enter your Lafayette NetID and password and click [OK].
- After a successful login, your shares should appear as drives when browsing the files on your computer. You will also see shortcuts to the shares on your Desktop.
