The main campus web server utilizes WebDAV for file transfer which provides a number of improvements over FTP, including secure/encrypted file transfer and enhanced maintainer account security. Additionally, WebDAV file shares appear on your computer as any other disk drive, allowing better integration with whatever web authoring platform you prefer to use. For users of Macs and Linux-based systems, WebDAV is integrated directly into your operating system so there is no need for a specialized client. While Windows operating systems do provide similar integration, connections are often problematic and unreliable. Therefore, we have licensed the WebDrive product for the campus and made it available on the Software Center. In addition Dreamweaver and other web authoring software that has WebDAV capabilities can be used.
To access your maintainer accounts via WebDAV, enter the URL
into your WebDAV client (not your web browser), replacing <network_id> with your Case ID and <account_name> with the your group's account name. For example, if your Case ID is abc123 and you maintain the origami club website (account name: origami), the URL to enter into your WebDAV client is https://www.case.edu:8000/abc123/origami . When prompted, enter your Case Network ID and password.
Below are links to instructions explaining how to set-up your preferred software or operating system to connect with the webserver.
