The "H" drive (personal file storage space for each user on the E& H network)    Click here to read overview of H: drive.

The Emory & Henry network maintains a virtual private network "drive" for each user. On this is normally mounted as the "H" drive and is commonly called "the H drive". Students and faculty can store files on this drive and can then access it from any other computer on the network.

Though the H drive is often mounted by default when a user logs in, that does not always happen. Also, the current conventions for using Macs on the network is that students do NOT log into their network account, so of course the H drive is not mounted.

Therefore, it is useful to know how to mount the H drive :

(a) When using a PC logged into the network

Mount the drive - several ways to to do this. Some will work when others wont:

right click "My Computer" and choose "Map Network Drive" Browse for your user name. Look in ehc/ehc-home [ that's correct as of Jan 2007 ]

When using a Mac logged into the network

Click: go\connect to server
Enter:           smb://ehc-home/username            [ e.g. "smb://ehc-home/hgreen05" ]
Click: connect

Also, it is posible to FTP into your H drive from any computer on the internet. It is useful to know how to do this also.

            See : http://computers.ehc.edu/ftp_instructions.htm

However, if you are using IE7 (Internet Explorer 7) the instructions are slightly different:

To FTP to your H drive when IE7 is installed:

  • You need to open My Computer (Not IE7)
  • In the address bar where it says “My Computer”, type ftp.ehc.edu.
  • Then you should be prompted for username and password.

Emory & Henry Web Pages:

Some faculty and staff have web pages on the E&H system. I have one for TitleIII at "http:\\instruct.ehc.edu". It is useful to know how to mount that drive also:

When using a PC logged into the network

 Mount the network drive, look for the name under "ehcwebex2"

When using a Mac logged into the network [ it will be something like this... we need to figure this out and put it here ]

Click: go\connect to server
Enter: //ehcwebx2/username            [ e.g. "//ehcwebx2/hgreen05" ]
Click: connect

The purpose of this web page is to document the above procedures.
