How do I connect a third-party computer to our network
Connecting an external users' laptop or PC to the company network is straightforward.

Unplug a network lead from an currently connected PC and plug it into the laptop instead.

On the laptop go to the 'Start' button, and select 'Run'

In the 'Open:' box type '\\server' (without the ' and note the \ and not / )

When prompted enter your usual username and password.

The server shared folders and printers will appear - files can be copied to or from the server directories in the usual manner.
