The VMServer running at i3Detroit has storage space for member files which can be accessed from any computer connected to the network.

To access this on your personal computer, you must connect to \\\i3fileshare. In Windows 10, open Computer, click Computer ➪ Map Network Drive in the Ribbon, and enter the above as the folder. Note that Windows 10 may refuse to connect to the file share due to a protocol security issue. To override this, do the following:

  1. Press Windows+R to open the Run dialog.
  2. Type OptionalFeatures and click OK.
  3. Expand "SMB 1.0/CIFS File Sharing Support", and check "SMB 1.0/CIFS Client". (Don't check either of the two other options.)
  4. Click OK, and reboot if prompted.

If you’re using a Mac, in the Finder, choose Go ➪ Connect to Server and enter smb:// If you are prompted for a password, select “Guest”.
