If you are experiencing problems when you try to log in to electronic resources on non-MWS (campus) computers, either on or off-campus, then the login box you see may look like this one:

The login box above gives an example of why the problem occurs; the domain in the example above is listed as SMADDOX-PC (the name of the laptop or off-campus PC) meaning that the login details will be sent to the actual computer, not to the University of Liverpool domain.

The following is how the same login would look on an MWS computer:

The University of Liverpool Domain is called LIVAD.

To solve problems with access, the domain needs to be specified before the username with a backslash (\) inbetween:
LIVAD\username

i.e.:

DOMAIN\username

Enter your password into the password field as you normally would.
