    Click the icon here to access or the Staff Email link in the header of this page: Groupwise WebAccess


    Schoolmaster StaffLink (formerly known as WebAccess)This will provide "lookup" access for information about students for school office workers. In addition, Teachers' Integrated Gradebook can be accessed via this weblink, including for all input of data:

    https://do-sm.wlwv.k12.or.us/sm


    Online Password Changer: The Online Password Changer allows you to change your
    network
    password (note that this is not necessarily the same as your GroupWise password) through a webpage without needing to use a Windows PC with the Novell client.
     
     

    Google Apps for WLWV Staff
     
    Staff have access to our Google Docs/Drive/Apps system. Your username is your full GroupWise email address. You can get your password from your IT staff or local Teacher-Librarian.
     
    Note that confidential student information should NOT be included in any Google-hosted document or system.
     
    You can gain access using these links:
     
    Drivehttps://drive.google.com  (opens in new window)
    Docs: https://docs.google.com  (opens in new window)
    Sheetshttps://sheets.google.com  (opens in new window)

    ** Teachers and Staff should never publish recognizable pictures of students under age 12 on the web. And, only pictures of students over 12 whose parents have NOT objected should be used as well. Consult with office staff at your school about this specific setting on a per-student basis. 
      
    Note that WLWV staff do NOT use the email component of G Suite for Education. Emails created from and for things like sharing documents will come directly into your GroupWise account.
     

    Connect to WLWV Cloud    
     
    Connecting to the WLWV Storage Cloud allows you to access our school district's centralized storage facilities. These utilities will work within the school district network. If you want to use these tools from off-site, you will need to make a VPN connection first (see above).
     
    Connect to WLWV Cloud for PC / Disconnect from WLWV Cloud for PCDownload both of these utilities and then create convenient shortcuts to them
     
     
     
    iPad: FileBrowser app Obtain the app called "File Browser" from the AppStore on the iPad to access our centralized storage systems. The app is not free and must be purchased in the AppStore. Here are instructions for setting up and using the FileBrowser app.
     
    Android: WebDAV File Manager Download the free app called "WebDAV File Manager". There are many WebDAV clients for Android - this particular one is that we have used and found success with. There have been others that we have tested that did NOT work. Instructions for the setup are very much like the FileBrowser app instructions above.
     
     

    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.

    Browser-based

    • 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.

    Choose browser-based...

    • ... when you are using someone else's computer or a public workstation.
    • ... when you need quick access to single files from your network drives.

    WebDAV

    • 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.

    Choose WebDAV...

    • ... 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.

    NetStorage (Browser-Based)

    You should now use your school district provided Novell network username (the first part of your 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.

    Click this icon to access NetStorage: NetStorage

     

    NetStorage (WebDAV): In order to use NetStorage in WebDAV mode, you must configure your computer first. This is a one-time task and is relatively straightforward. Click here for details of setting up the access on Windows.


    GroupWise Third Party Email Client Setup
     
    GroupWise can work with virtually any 3rd party email client for sending and receiving email.
     
    Email Receiving Settings:
     
    Set up the client as an IMAP client (not as a POP) client. These settings will allow you to receive email.
     
    IMAP Address: wlwv.k12.or.us
    IMAP Port: 143
    SSL: Enabled
    Username: Full Email Address (eg: publicj@wlwv.k12.or.us)
    Password: GroupWise Password
     
    Email Sending Settings: 
     
    To be able to send email from your phone, you need to set up the Sending system.
     
    SMTP Address: wlwv.k12.or.us
    Port: 587
    SMTP Authentication: Enabled
    SSL: Enabled
    Username: Full Email Address  (eg: publicj@wlwv.k12.or.us)
    Password: GroupWise Password
     

    GWAVA GroupWise Quarantine: This enables you to access your quarantined email. Quarantined email is email that was determined to be suspicious in nature and thus was held. Use your GroupWise Email Account (my_acct@wlwv.k12.or.us) as the username and your GroupWise password to gain access.

    Click the link here to access: GWAVA email quarantine manager


    GroupWise Messenger: Download, install, and use the Instant Messaging system that integrates with our network.

    Click the icon here to access: Groupwise Messenger


    iPrint: This utility is designed to allow users to print to network printers in the district/building from home. You will download the iPrint Client and install it first. Then, restart your computer, come back to here, then click the link to the printer you want to print to. The driver will be downloaded and installed on your local hard drive.

    All iPrint Printers are now available from the same server: http://iprint.wlwv.k12.or.us/ipp


    Schoolmaster Remote Access for Office Workers and Administrators: Access to the Schoolmaster system can be gained by using Windows Remote Desktop Access. Access must be setup and approved. This access requires that the Microsoft Terminal Services (mstsc.exe) client be available on PCs. Macintosh users should search for and install "Microsoft Remote Desktop Connection Client".

     

    Note that the links above will ONLY work if you have a remote access account with the appropriate credentials. Only office and admin users will be granted this access. Teachers should use the web-based version of the system found at the section above this.


    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 World Book Online 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"...
     
     
    For PC's...
     
    1. You need to download and install the VPN client for your computer. You can get them from ftp://198.236.20.17/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.
    2. Run the Cisco VPN Client you just installed. You should find a shortcut on your desktop and/or in your Start -> Programs list.
    3. Next, you have to download this profile to your local computer and then import it into the VPN Client itself.
    4. 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.

    For Mac's...

    Use the native VPN client into the Mac OS.
     
    1. Go to the Network inside System Preferences...
    2. Click the "+"...
    3. Set the Interface to "VPN"
    4. Set VPN Type to Cisco IPSec
    5. Leave the Service Name as VPN (Cisco IPSec)
    6. Set the Server Address to 198.236.40.8
    7. Fill in your username - for example, nelsonc@wlwv.k12.or.us (although it does not really matter what you put here as it simply serves as a default)...
    8. Click Authentication Settings...
    9. For the Shared Secret put in wi1dc@t5
    10. For the Group Name, put in WLWV
    11. Check the box to show the VPN connection in the menu bar
    12. Click Apply...
     
    Useful iPad/iPhone 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/iPhone: This profile inserts most of the settings needed to set up your GroupWise email on your iPad as an IMAP client. Now, SSL secured. If you have the old one (above - non-SSL), remove it and click the link to load the SSL-enabled one.

    Enable Access to Apple iCloud: This profile will remove the restriction from being able to use the Apple iCloud.
