Accessing Your Files:
Webdav is a protocol created for transfering files over the web. ACMS offers it as a service to instructional account holders. It provides access to your ACMS storage directories from locations outside ACMS labs, e.g. home or from laptops connected to the campus wireless network. It can provide read/write access to your files and is currently the only way to remotely access files saved when logged in to ACMS computing labs on campus.
You can access a read only version of your files from any location using a web browser. This means that you will be able to view your files and save them to your computer, but you will not be able to upload or modify them.
To access your files, point your browser to:
Note: You may have more than one ACMS account (username). Typically, all students have an ACMS email account; in addition, you may have ACMS course specific accounts, which come and go as you take different classes.View your ACMS accounts to see all the storage directories connected to your course-specific and ACMS e-mail account.
The server will then prompt you for your user name and password. After logging in, you will see folders for each instructional server connected to this account, which may include class storage and public folders, and/or your Mac and PC Documents folders. Remember these documents are read only; you cannot upload files using your browser only.
