VPN Connection

Hi guys,

I've recently had a VPN connection to access my shared drive at work set up on my Macbook Air.

I've never done this before, so it may sound silly, but where will I find the folder to gain access?

I've pressed connect on the VPN connection and it doesn't appear in Finder.

Can anyone advise?

Thanks

I'm also trying to access some Microsoft files on the shared drive and being told I can only open them as 'Read only' files.

Please note they are not open anywhere else.

Can anyone help?

The files have quite possibly been set up intentionally as read only; you may find an option to "save a copy" locally though. You really need to talk to your own IT folks as they set the various security and access controls.

Thanks Chris, I think it may be best as I need to be able to save on both and not on separate systems.
