Connect to Personal Network Storage (H-Drive) on Windows

These instructions are for any Lehigh user needing to manually map their LAN drive (H-drive) on computers that are not in Active Directory (AD), such as personally-owned machines. These instructions may also be useful for users who are traveling or living off-campus and connecting to the Lehigh network via the Lehigh VPN. NOTE: Custom applications have been written for students to automatically map these drives for both Windows and Mac users. These are available on the Lehigh Software page.
