WebDrive for MAC OS X 10.8

INTRODUCTION

WebDrive enables you easy access to your UT documents from your workplace at home or from a mobile device (smartphone or tablet). You can access your data through Finder, Windows explorer, or a mobile device with a WebDAV app (for example GoodReader, WebDAV Navigator).

A limitation of WebDrive is that it is not suitable for transferring or copying very large files like cd’s or large programs. The maximum file size is set at 30MB.

Technique WebDrive

WebDrive uses the WebDAV protocol via internet to access your data stored at the file servers. There are several WebDAV clients for several platforms like Apple Mac OS, iOS, Microsoft Windows and Ubuntu Linux. You can access your documents almost anywhere because the data is transported through the interne. You do not need a VPN connection for this. The data is safely transported with the use of a HTTPS connection. This is a secure (encrypted) connection so that all the information is transported safely.
