In the "Address" field, use the IP address

In the username & password fields, use your standard BCIT student/staff ID number (ie: a00123456), and your BCIT login password.

  • You must use a lowercase "a" in the username field.

If you are connecting on your own computer (ie: a laptop), it's safe to click the "Remember Login" option. This should not be enabled when using lab computers.

Editshare on a Mac

It is possible to connect some network drives using two different internet protocols on a Mac:

  • Native SMB (Server Message Block)
  • AFP (Apple Filing Protocol)

We have found that AFP provides the best compatibility for editing on a Mac. If you are encountering file or permission errors while using software with Editshare on a Mac, please ensure that you have drives mounted as "AFP".
