2. Type in your blackbaudhost\username and password used to login to CRM
3. On the advanced tab, remote directory, set the appropriate default remote directory (staging/5740 for example).  If you are not sure, this information can be obtain within CRM by going to Administration, Import, Import Sources (Default Network Import Path).

If you are unable to connect to this folder, your user may need to be granted permissions.  Create a case including the username needing access and a link to the environment the request is for.
