The web pages you maintain are stored on a remote server rather than your local H:space so before you can start editing your pages on the Webstaging server you will need to establish a connection.

To connect to the Webstaging server:

  1. Double-click the computer icon on your Desktop
  2. From the toolbar, select Tools then Map Network Drive
  3. When the 'Map Network Drive' window appears, click on the drop-down list under Drive and select the drive letter you previously had connected to BSS5

    where the location of the new folder is:
  4. In the Folder box, enter the location you made a note of earlier
  5. Ensure that the 'Reconnect at logon' option is selected so that the computer remembers the connection the next time you logon.
  6. Click Finish
  7. If required, repeat the above steps for each of your sites

Once successfully mapped, a window will open showing the contents of the mapped folder. Close both this window and the Map Network Drive window.

Updating a shortcut on remote desktop

  1. Right-click the shortcut and select Properties
  2. In the 'Target' field, replace \\BSS5 with \\Adminshared\Web
  3. Click OK to finish
