AL LABS Web File

To make life a bit easier we are testing a remote file access to the lab servers using a Web Based Filer. You do not need to mess with VPN settings or getting the right version of java, etc. You do need a modern web browser though (Sorry IE Users)

  • Enter your lab username and password. It should connect you to the Groups folder.
  • Should you need to access your desktop files you can select AL-LAB Home from the Workspace menu on the top right.
  • Most browsers will support drag and drop uploading and downloading.

Again this is something we are testing out, the original method still works. If you have any comments or suggestions please email me at
