With the Web File Manager (short: WebFiler), university members within and outside the campus can access the data drives of the Jade University network system of computers. This happens via a web browser and a secured and encrypted connection. The web access is thought to look into and download data.


The access via Webbrowser is basically to consult and download data and it offers limited comfort. The following link leads you to the WebFiler.


Please log in with the Standard Login (form: ma1150).


The access via Data-Manager via the WebDAV-protocol with the WebFiler offers a more comfortable access, therefore you need to configure your data-manager accordingly.

Use this access with care. WebDAV Clients does not control the “File-Locking” reliable in all cases. As a consequence, the actual document is not saved when more than one person is having access at the same time.

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 acquired licenses for the WebDAV compatible software WebDrive. You can find it in the WebFiler under

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

  • Type of Server: Secure WebDAV
  • URL / Address:
  • Username: Standard Login (form: ma1150)
  • Password: Your password
  • Further Settings:
    • General Settings / DAV:
      • Lock Owner-Feature: <PC-Name> <Your name> (e.g. mo2xxxx Max Mustermann)
      • Activate automatic shut of the DAV: Activated
    • File Settings/ File:

      • More Users: Activated
  • Site-Name: JADE-HS - PC-Verbundsystem (short: JADE-HS - PCVS)
  • Drive: Y:\
