We have added a number of means of accessing your school work at home. Below is a summary of some of these accesses along with brief descriptions of how to gain access to them. If you have problems using them, please feel free to email Curtis Nelson at email@example.com.
Off-Site VPN Access
What is VPN? VPN = "Virtual Private Network"... Explanation: Although not literally so, our network is a "private network" as far as the world is concerned. When you are outside our network though, you are not on our network. Being on our private network provides "direct access" to some things, like WorldBookOnline and others. There is a firewall that separates our private network from the world and adds some protections. A VPN connection allows you to connect to our network as if you were actually in it. Hence, "virtual private network"...
- You need to download and install the VPN client for your computer. You can get them from ftp://220.127.116.11/Utilities/VPN/ - the username is "clacknet" and the password is blank. Depending on your computer, you will likely have to re-boot your computer after the installation.
- Run the Cisco VPN Client you just installed. You should find a shortcut on your desktop and/or in your Start -> Programs list.
- Next, you have to download this profile to your local computer and then import it into the VPN Client itself.
- Next, you double-click the connection. It will ask for a username and password. The username should be your full email address and your password is your network password.
Use the native VPN client into the Mac OS.

Useful iPad Profiles for Staff
These are a few useful profiles for use with iPads. From your iPad, click on the link and you should be prompted to install the profile.
If you need help removing a previously loaded profile, contact your IT Specialist or submit a trouble ticket.
VPN Setup for iPad: This profile allows you to connect into the School District network directly. Once connected, access is as if you are in the district. This opens up access to many resources, including using the FileBrowser app to access files stored in the WLWV Cloud.
Groupwise Email Setup for iPad: This profile inserts most of the settings needed to set up your Groupwise email on your iPad as an IMAP client.
Enable Access to Apple iCloud: This profile will remove the restriction from being able to use the Apple iCloud.
GoogleDocs for WLWV Staff
Staff have access to our GoogleDocs/Drive/Apps system. Your username is the same as your Groupwise user name. The domain is wlwv.oregonk-12.net. So, an example GoogleApps for Education for WLWV email account is email@example.com. You can get your password from your IT staff or local Teacher-Librarian. You can gain access using these links:
If you use the links below, you need only provide your username (without the @wlwv.oregonk-12.net domain in order to login)
If you use "normal" google URLs to gain access, you will need to supply the @wlwv.oregonk-12.net on the username.

NetStorage: NetStorage allows you to access files located at school. Using NetStorage, you can download and work on files located on any of the drives you can access at school.
NetStorage provides two ways to access your files, via a modern web-browser, or via WebDAV using a WebDAV client. Look below to see which one is right for you.
- Supports any modern web browser (Mozilla 1.7, Mozilla Firefox, Safari 1.0, or Internet Explorer 6)
- Does not require any configuration or software to be installed.
- Allows you to upload, download, move, copy, delete, and salvage files.
- Does not allow you to upload multiple files at a time.
- Does not allow file access directly from within Microsoft Office applications.
- ... when you are using someone else's computer or a public workstation.
- ... when you need quick access to single files from your network drives.
- Uses a WebDAV client (There is a WebDAV client built into Windows 2000/XP)
- Requires one-time set up of WebDAV URL in Windows.
- Allows you to upload, download, create folders, move, copy, and delete files.
- Allows you to upload/download multiple files and folders at a time.
- Allows you to access files directly from within MS Office's Open and Save dialogs.
- ... when you are using your own computer, and will need frequent access to your network files.
- ... when you need to upload/download multiple files at once.
- ... when you want to access your network files directly from within Microsoft Office applications' Open and Save dialog boxes.
You should now use your school district provided email address and network password to gain access to these updated tools.
Once you have gained access, you should have access to all of your network drives and directories as if you were at school. Note that your H drive shows up listed as "Home".
When using Netstorage, you need to realize that you will be transferring files between your local computer at home and your network directories at school. If you try to access a file on the network drives, you will be prompted to download it. You can then make any changes desired, then use the "File" menu to re-upload it.
You will likely find the "Folder View" button useful in helping to determine where you are at any point in time.
If, for some reason, your login does not work, follow the instructions below to enter your fully qualified username.
Access to your network-based storage locations on the district file servers. When prompted for the username and password, the username is your Groupwise email account (including the @wlwv.k12.or.us) and your password is your network password.
