Connect to a BML File Server – Windows

NOTE: Please be sure that you are using the “BML Private” wireless network, the public wireless network is internet only, and doesn’t allow access to printers and file servers.

These instructions assume that you have established credentials (an account) on the BML network. 

For Windows 8 and Windows 10 users

  1. If necessary, enable “Network Discovery” on your PC
  2. Go to the Windows start screen and type \\chinook
  3. Hit the enter key, you will be prompted for your BML network credentials

Username = bodega\your_login or \bodega\your_login (note the backslash in front of bodega)
Password = your_password (use your own password)

The explorer window will allow you to browse the file server.

For Windows 7 users

If necessary, enable “Network Discovery” on your PC

From the start menu, in the search box type \\chinook

If challenged for your username and password use this convention:

The explorer window will now let you browse the contents of the network resource you specified, see below:

To “Map” a network drive, right click on on the share you want to map, for example “Users”. A pop up menu will appear, choose the option to “Map Network Drive”.

A dialogue box will open. Choose a drive letter for the mapping and make sure that “Reconnect at login” is checked, choose “Finish”. See below.

If you browse to “My Computer”, you should see the mapped network drive that you just created.

To permanently disconnect the drive mapping, from “My Computer” right click on the drive mapping and choose “Disconnect”.

Note:

  • On a domain joined PC, if you are logged in with an account other than your own you may not be able to access your folders properly. If this is the case, log OUT and log in with your own credentials.
  • STUDENTS and VISITORS: If you are using your own personal computer, most frequently you will not be working on a PC that is part of the “BODEGA” domain so you will be prompted for your BML network credentials. In the login field type bodega\FirstInitialLastName (i.e. bodega\jsmith), in some cases you may need to type \bodega\FirstInitialLastName – note the back slash in front of bodega. Then type in your password.
