WebDrive on Linux

Introduction

WebDrive makes it possible to reach your UT documents while you are working at home and/or on your mobile device. It is not possible to copy big files, like CDs or big programs; maximum file size is 30 MB.

Technique WebDrive

To reach your data, you use a WebDAV protocol. There are several WebDAV clients for different platforms (Apple Mac OS, iOS, Microsoft Windows and Ubuntu Linux). Because the data is transported via internet, you can reach your data nearly everywhere. You don’t need VPN connection and your data is secured by HTTPS connection.
