Map drive to internet location
We are about to start trialing using sharepoint as a basic 'VLE'. Somewhere for our students to access files and work from the teachers. We already use it as our public website, so they will log in to the site and see a list of documents the teachers have put in a folder.
The sharepoint server is hosted at our LA. In the sharepoint site, there is a folder that will contain the documents and I would like to map a drive to on my local computer so I do not have to log in to the website and upload the documents. All I will have to do is drop the files into the mapped drive. I can do this by using the command
net use z: http://sharepointsite.gov.uk/website/folder
it then asks for my website username and password which I can enter and voila, I have a mapped drive to the internet location where I can drop in files that students can access from the internet.
Heres the problem...
We use GPP to map drives. I have tried to map the drive for all staff but if fails because there is no username or password. It just fails to appear in My Computer.
How do i map the drive for staff without authentication so when they click on the z: drive, it will ask them for their username and password.
I hope i have explained clearly enough.
