FAQ's

Can I access my files from a Mac?

  • Yes, the finder also enables access to remote file systems via Davenport. You also have the option of using Goliath.

How does Windows know if I require access via web or via webDAV if the URL is the same?

  • By default, Windows will open the URL as if it were a website. If you open it from the corresponding menu in the Explorer, marking the box "open as a web folder", then it will try to use webDAV and you will see your content as in any other folder on your system.

I am a member of the teaching staff. Do I need to use my Racó user account to access my files?

  • No. To access the files that you see from the PCs in the labs you will have to use the same account that you use to login to the PCs.
