I wasn't sure where to post this but I figured that I would post it here as I'm using windows 7
Anyway, to my problem.
Here's the situation: At the moment I am living at a boarding school and have my desktop, running windows 7, connected to the wireless network. I was recently looking into connecting my computer to the servers so that I can access my school files from my desktop.
I found a tutorial on the ICT services page for doing this on a mac and that is to connect to an afp server (afp://tkslx10.school.edu.au, with a few other for connecting to other network drives) now I realize that there is a slim chance of me connecting to said server from a windows machine.
However considering that I know that those servers do exist and all of the school workstations are connected to the same server (same name, different protocol) and are all running windows XP it should therefore logically be possible to connect to that server via my desktop.
The issues which I believe may hinder such a thing are:
The school workstations are connected to a wired network, whilst my desktop is connected to a wireless network. When I check out the network map from a school workstation I can see a massive list of network drives and all the other computers, when I check out the network map from my desktop I can just see other students personal machines, not the school machines.
I have tried replacing afp with ftp and ignoring the protocol all together, I even got as far as a login screen, however I simply couldn't log in (got to the login by using map network drive>Folder: \\tkslx10\DATA\Y2010\Username, this is the folder that exists on the school workstations) however I couldn't log in even if I changed my login domain.
So that's it, any help would be great and very appreciated, and if I have posted this in the wrong spot than tell me and ill re-post in the correct location.
(Sorry about the long post)
