I don't know if I'm asking this right because my searches result in no help. I'm connected to my work via VPN. I remember that there is someway to type something in the url bar to access the servers. Something like \\servername\sharename. I don't know the syntax though. Can anyone help? Thanks

Deanna, are you trying to map a sharename of a server from your windows machine? If so you can simply connect to the share through windows:

Start>run then type \\Server_IP\Sharename

or by server dns name if you know it.

Start>run then type \\ServerDNS_mame\Sharename

or you can do it from command line:


c:\net use * \\server_ip\sharename
