Mapping Drives on Windows2000/XP/Vista

Your PC is not "trusted" by the IUP network in the way that the PCs in the public labs are, so you cannot set your PC to log into IUP's domain. You can, however, map your network drives individually so that you can access them. Here are the steps you need to map network drives on your PC.

Click on the My Computer icon. Choose Tools and map network drive from menus.

(In Vista, right click on My Computer and choose map network drive. The interface looks a little different, but all steps are the same.)

Map Drive 1

Choose the drive letter in the Drive pull-down menu. Enter the path to the drive in the Folder section. Check the box for Reconnect at logon.

 Drive Letter  Drive Path Drive name 
N \\acad2\common Common drive
I \\acad1\instruct$ Instruct drive
P \\iupa06\project$ Project drive
H

\\IUPH\Username$

(Your four-letter username)

Personal drive

Enter your username in iupmsd\username in the User name section, where username is your four-letter username. Enter your network password in the Password section. Check the box next to Remember my password. Click OK in the Connect As window, then Click OK in the Map Network Drive window.

Note: If you do not know your username and password please see IT Support Center’s page on finding your Network Account and Password Info.

Your drive will now be mapped every time you log in.
