Access to a Network Share

C&CZ Samba shares

This setup works in principle for all so-called "Samba" shares, that are also known as "smb" or "CIFS" network shares.

Off-campus you always need a VPN connection to connect to a share, on campus this is only necessary for a few more secured shares.

The iPad does not natively support Samba, so an app is needed. The example uses FileBrowser. An alternative is GoodReader.

The FileBrowser app can show MS Office documents, but not edit them. If you want to edit these files, nstall the app Documents To Go. FileBrowser can also show PDF documents.

  • Determine the name of the fileserver. Some cases often encountered:
    • Science home-directory: log in to the Do-It-Yourself website and look in the homepage behind "Home disk at"- This is something like: \\pile.science.ru.nl\mylogin
    • Backupped network disk (sometimes called "volletje") or a web-server directory: on your own pc find out the network path of this network share
      • Through "My Computer" in MS-Windows, right-click the network disk and look at the properties: the network path looks like \\servername.science.ru.nl\sharenaam, with servername matching sharenaam-srv.
      • Through the "Finder" in MacOS X, click the network disk and look at the properties with Command-I: the network path looks like smb://servername.science.ru.nl/sharename, with servername matching sharenaam-srv.


  • Install the app FileBrowser
  • Open FileBrowser
  • Choose Menu
  • Choose + to add a new network server
  • Fill in:


Address \\servername.science.ru.nl (Windows notation) or smb://servername.science.ru.nl (Mac notation)
Click Show More Settings
Display Name your own choosing, e.g. "Home"
User Name Choose Edit... and fill in the science loginnaam
Password Safe is On demand, which lets you fill in the password each time, You can also choose Edit... and fill in the science password
Click Advanced Settings
Enable NetBIOS switched on - the warning can be ignored if it's a C&CZ-managed fileserver, click OK
Compatibility Mode switched on - the warning can be ignored if it's a C&CZ-managed fileserver, click OK
Auto List Shares switched on (default) if more than 1 network share is needed from this server, otherwise switched off.
SMB Pipelining switched off
SMB Port Number 445 (default)


  • Choose Save, FileBrowser will check whether it can reach the server.
  • A pop-up will appear if the password has not been entered before.
    • Fill in the password of the science account and press Connect.
  • If Auto List Shares:
    • switched on: all shares of this server that can be accessed are shown.
    • switched off: choose Add Share, fill in the sharename and choose Add.
  • Navigation on the network disk:
    • Choose a directory (folder) to enter it;
    • Choose a document to open it, FileBrowser uses an internal viewer (Stratosferix) to show documents;
    • Tap the document to show the menu below:
      • Choose the "export" option to open the document in a different app, e.g. in Documents To Go;
      • Choose + to bookmark the current document;
      • Choose the "bookmarks" option to show all bookmarks, this makes it easy to switch between documenten.
