Share Drive Mapping
If you log into your computer when you are outside of Macquarie Network (eg. at home), you will not be able to see your network folders / shared drive. You can still manually map your network folders if you have internet connection and OneNet Anywhere VPN installed.
- Open Finder, Click Go on the menu bar > Connect to Server
- In the server address, copy and paste the following:
Departmental share: smb://mqauth.uni.mq.edu.au/shares/data/(Department name)/
Personal Share: smb://mqauth.uni.mq.edu.au/shares/user/(Department name)/MQXXXXXXXX (OneID)
- Click Connect and log in with OneID credentials to authenticate.

Note: If the personal drive does not connect, it may not exist. Submit a OneHelp ticket to request for a personal folder creation.
