Connecting to Helios with OS X


  • At the Finder, go to the "Go" item in the menu bar at the top of your screen and choose "Connect to Server..." and the following dialog box will appear.


  • In the Server Address field type the server you want to connect to, in our example that is: smb:// - it is very important to include the smb:// because this tells OS X that it's a Windows Server.
  • Optionally click the + sign across from where you just typed. Doing so will add the server to your Favorite Server list so that next time you need only double-click smb:// to connect.
  • Click Connect and the following dialog box will appear:


  • Enter your Username and Password for the server.


  • Select the file share volume you wish to use and then click OK. The server will then appear on your desktop.
