1.2. Connecting to the server when using the VPN (Mac)

Step 1: Unzip the VPN pack which has been emailed to you.

Step 2: Copy the UHB DataSet´╗┐ shortcut to your desktop, or home folder, or somewhere for safe keeping.

Double click on the UHB DataSet shortcut to connect to the server storage. You will be asked to enter your credentials. These are the same as your VPN credentials, so the username will be your first initial and then surname. For example, for Jack Jones, it would be jjones. The password was sent to your registered mobile phone number (SMS text message).


´╗┐Click on 'Connect' and you'll then have access to DataSet from either the desktop, sidebar or by going to the 'Go' Menu and selecting 'Computer' from the Finder.

If you should experience any problems with using the provided shortcut, you can access the server by going to the 'Go' Menu, select 'Connect to Server' and typing into the address bar: smb://10.2.0.1/DataSet
