Mapping Network Drives in the Russell Labs Domain
Note: To access servers in the Russell Labs Domain, the user's IP address must be allowed past our firewalls. For UW-Madison users, if your computer is not plugged in via network cable to an approved network you will need to secure a VPN connection before proceeding. See WiscVPN (Win) - Departmental VPN for details.
Mapping the drives through My Computer
- If you are logging onto a machine on the Russell domain and using your Russell Lab username and password leave the box Connect using different credentials unchecked.
- If the machine is not on the Russell domain you will need to check the box Connect using different credentials. When prompted for your username and password you will need to enter the username as russell\<your username> the password will be the normal password.
If the connection was successful, Windows Explorer will open the mapped network drive.
