Lab shares are located on the servers "biochstore4" and "biochstore6"- to make a connection, type the following into the box marked "Server Address" e.g:
smb://biochstore4.bioch.ox.ac.uk or smb://biochstore6.bioch.ox.ac.uk
You will now see a long list of share names. Pick out your lab's share and authenticate with your biochemistry username and password (the one you use to log on to a Windows PC). This can in some cases be different from your Oxford (webmail/nexus) username/password. If in doubt please contact IT Support.
Some shares are located on the server "biochstore1", notably the Macintosh "Public Apps" share which contains disk images of MS-Office, Endnote and other software. To make a connection to this server, simply swap the number for a 1 in the address above.
If you want your computer to remember your password, make sure the "Save in Keychain" tickbox is selected when you make your initial connection to the server. If you have your computer set to log in automatically when you start up (i.e. go straight to the desktop without prompting for a password) then this option is not recommended.
