  2. Tap on the three horizontal dots in the upper left and tap the the Connect to Server option.

     
  3. Next to Server
    • For a department folder: smb://microwave.bowdoin.edu/dept/YOUR_DEPARTMENT_CODE
    • For your home folder: smb://microwave.bowdoin.edu/home/YOUR_USERNAME

       
  4. Tap on Connect
     
  5. Make sure the Registered User option is checked.
    In the Name field enter your Bowdoin username (without the @bowdoin.edu)
