    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 WebDav
    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.

    Primary School NetStorage Access

    Middle School NetStorage Access

    High School NetStorage Access

    Other Netstorage Access

     

    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.

    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 the following icon to access NetStorage: NetStorage


    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
