Yorktown Server Access

For grading purposes your ASP.NET code needs to be located on the Yorktown server. Each MIS 324 student will be provided with an account on Yorktown. The server is accessible both on- and off-campus is via network Drive mapping. Off-campus access also requires the use of VPN (virtual private network) for secure access to WWU's network. Map network drive
 

Map Network Drive to Yorktown:

  1. VPN: (needed off-campus) Go to https://securevpn.wwu.edu . The first time you open this link it will install a VPN client on your PC or Mac. Prefix your WWU username with "wwu\" (e.g. Username: wwu\YourUserName) when logging into the campus network. Login with your WWU username and password.
     
  2. Network drive  A network drive connects your computer to the Yorktown web server. Follow ATUS instructions for Mapping Network Drives.

    The folder address for Windows users is:

    \\yorktown.cbe.wwu.edu\students\qtrCode

    For Mac users:

    smb://yorktown.cbe.wwu.edu/students/qtrCode

    where qtrCode is a three digit number. The first two digits are the year (ie. 16 for 2016) and the third is the quarter (1=winter, 2=spring, 3=summer, 4=fall). For instance, if the quarter is fall 2016 you would enter:

    \\yorktown.cbe.wwu.edu\students\164

    If asked for a login, prefix your username with "wwu\" (eg. wwu\username).

    Once connected will see a single folder with your WWU user ID. This is the root folder for your web pages. Any files that you place inside this folder will be publically accessible via the Web.
