    Note: you will not have access to this drive until you connect via Harvard's VPN.

  6. Click Connect using a different user name

  1. On the Connect As windows:
    • User name: enter HLS\<username>
      • <username> should be replaced with your Harvard Law School username (this is what you would use when you initially log on to your computer)
    • Password:  enter your password
      • This is the password you use when you initially log on to your computer
