Connecting to Datastor on Macintosh


In order to connect to Datastor on Mac, you must either be connected to Skidmore's domain (through a wired connection on campus), SkidmoreSecure Wi-Fi (with the correct credentials), or be connected to our domain through the VPN.

For VPN installation instructions, please see our help article titled "Connecting to VPN in OSX (Mac)"


  1. With no windows open or focused, the toolbar displays Finder in the top-left. Click Go, then Connect to Server…




  1. In the Server Address field, type cifs://datastor, then click Connect.





Here is the list of folders on Datastor, and you can locate what you are looking for here. If the option is already greyed out, that means that the folder is already mounted, and you can navigate to your Finder to view its contents.
