  1. Open Computer from the Windows' Start menu.
  2. Right-click on your mouse and select Add a Network Location from the pop-up menu.
  3. You will see a pop up titled "Welcome to the Add Network Location Wizard".
  4. Click the "Next" button.
  5. Click the "Next" button again.
  6. Type in the exact full WebDav address provided for you, an example of one would be:
  7. Click "Next" button.
  8. A pop up comes up, asking for your User name and Password. Use your Tufts UTLN. A typical UTLN would look something like this: xname01. If you are not on the Tufts campus, please try using Tufts\ before your UTLN so it would look like: user name: tufts\xname01
  9. For your password, please use your network password. If you don't know your UTLN or your Password, please contact the TTS Service Desk at: 617-627-3376 or
  10. You'll get a pop up that says, "What do you want to name this location?" Please pick the name of your organization or whatever you feel best describes the website you are trying to access. In this example, the name would be Ballroom Club. Click "Next" button. Then click "Finish".
  11. Now, you have made a network connection. You will see under your C Drive listing, your organization name "network" / folder. This is your connection to all the live files on the server. You can then create a local folder (outside of this network folder) to store your web files and make your changes. When you are done with making changes on your local system, you can then drag the file(s) over to the network folder. Please note, you are not to make edits directly on the network files; please drag and drop files into the network folder.
