Logging in to Class Shared Folders From Home 

I've experienced some weird anomalies when trying to login to the Class Shared folders via FTP, but I can usually get it to work if I follow these basic steps.

If the link brings up a "The page cannot be displayed" error, try clicking your browser's reload button (F5 on IE). This happens intermittently to me.

You will probably then get a popup error message stating,
"Windows cannot access this folder. Make sure you typed the file name correctly and that you have access to the folder."
Along with some other unimportant details. Click OK.

Right click anywhere on the blank page you are now staring at. A small menu should appear with one of the options reading, "Login As..." Click Login As... and then enter your username and password. Then from there you should be able to browse the class shared folders.
