Quite often we will give a researcher access to a web experiment by giving a webdav enabled url, a username and password. This page describes how to use this url. In the remainder of this page we will assume that you were given the url, the username u123456 and the password PASSWORD.


To use the url in a webbrowser, just open the page and type username and password in the popup dialog. This will give you a limited number of features (upload file, make directory, ...)


Microsoft Windows

One can use the Microsoft Windows """Map Network Drive""" feature to assign a drive letter. No special Windows program is needed to do this. It is an operating system feature. Note that there are quite a few issues. If you use Microsoft Windows it is usually a better idea to use an external program for accessing a webdav drive.
