Logging into my cloud ext2 through Mac Finder

I am trying to connect to my cloud ext2 via the finders “connect as” feature and I want to use my admin credentials to log into the drive so that I can create and manage folders through finder. Is this possible?

You can only log in using the credentials already created within the WD My Cloud EX2. The only exception is connecting as a “Guest” in order to access public shares. Credentials on your computer are separate.
