  • Install FileBrowser on your iPad

    Select your drive, right mouse button >> properties >> DFS tab, and write down the address
    Example: \\um-fs0004\users_fhs_fhs$\your.name\data



  • On your iPad start FileBrowser and add a new machine
    Enter the drive address you want to connect, and your username
    For security reasons: do not enter your password, leave the option 'On demand' selected



  • Follow the same procedure for projects and organization drives.
    Only, select your organization directory (not the root project L:, but select directory name , in this example: FHS_FHS)
    Add a new machine using this address
