By dint of WebDAVs, university members can access the data drives of the Jade University´s network system of computers on and outside of the campus. This is made possible with aid of a WebDAV-client and a secured, encrypted connection.

Microsoft Windows

Given that the WebDAV-client, which is contained in the operation system Microsoft Windows, unfortunately only works quite unsoundly, you need to install and configure a WebDAV compatible software, first. This is why the university computing centre has aquired licenses for the WebDAV compatible software WebDrive. You can find it in the WebFiler under JADE-HS - Dateien (X:) / HRZ-Support / WebDrive .

After successfull intallation and connection of the license on your computer, please configure it in the following way:

  • Type of Server: Secure WebDAV
  • URL / Address:
  • Username: Short username (form: ab1xyz)
  • Password: Your password in the network system of computers
  • Site-Name: JADE-HS - Network System of Computers
  • Drive: Y:\ (just an example, you can also use another free letter)
