Adding a Network Location in Windows
Adding a network place in Windows allows you to access FTP, Windows file shares, and some HTTP servers (with FrontPage extensions loaded) directly in My Network Places, without having to use an FTP client. Though this article uses Windows 10, the instructions are similar for 7 and 8.
- In Windows 7, search and click "Computer."
3. Click "Next" on the wizard that opens.
4. Select "Choose a custom network location" and click "Next."
5. Type in the address, FTP site, or network location, then select "Next."
- To add MyWeb server, type ftp://firstname.lastname@example.org, where “yourid” is your NMU ID.
- To add www-instruct server, type ftp://email@example.com, where “yourid” is your NMU ID.
7. Click "Finish" on the wizard.
8. If a login screen appears, type in your NMU ID and Password, then click "Log in."
9. The location will now be listed under "Network Locations" in "This PC."
