Accessing WWU drives remotely using WebDAV

WebDAV has been disabled for the foreseeable future. Click here for information on accessing network drives from off-campus using Western's VPN service.

If you are on-campus (or using VPN from off-campus), and you previously used WebDAV to map network drives on Mac OS-X, you will need to map your drives using SMB shares:

  1. Select Go > Connect to server
  2. Enter the following for the Server Address:
    • U (Home): smb://msfs-stuX.univ.dir.wwu.edu/stuX/username where X= the server you are on, username= your username (Check with the ATUS Help Desk to get your server name)
    • P (Facshare): smb://msfs-facshare.univ.dir.wwu.edu/facshare
    • S (Class): smb://msfs-class1.univ.dir.wwu.edu/class1
    • X (Software): smb://msfs-software.univ.dir.wwu.edu/software
    • V (CampusWeb): smb://msfs-campusweb.univ.dir.wwu.edu:139/www.wwu.edu

For Windows, you can map your network drives by creating shortcuts on your desktop to these locations:

Facshare (P): \\msfs-facshare\facshare
Class (S): \\msfs-class1\class1
Home (U): Check with the ATUS Help Desk
Software (X): \\msfs-software\software
Campusweb: \\msfs-campusweb\www.wwu.edu
