Connect to the XSAN/DMC in the Mac Lab
While the ideal location to connect to XSAN is in the Edit Suites, you may also connect to XSAN from any Apple computer.
1. In the finder window, select Go>Connect to Server
2. For server address type: afp://xsan-file-share
3. Click Connect.
4. Enter your Bates user name and password
5. Click Connect
You’ll now see a familiar space: The DMC volume of the Bates XSAN. Find your folder.
Important footnote: This connection is not designed for filesharing, not file editing. Opening and editing a Final Cut Pro or iMovie project over this connection may have unintendend and unfortunate results.
