Dispatch Share

  • The dispatch share contains files from several services. When a user utilizes one of these services, a folder is created which only that user can access. Information about the services is available in the menu bar to the left.

    There are two methods to access your Dispatch Share Folder (replace USERNAME with your username). In order to access your Dispatch Share Folder, you will need to connect to the Virtual Private Network (VPN) or log in to a  Virtual Computer Lab (VCL) session before you can access the dispatch share. 

    1. From your browser, enter: https://dispatch.iup.edu/USERNAME

    2. Access the folder by mapping a drive:

      • PC Users: \\its.iup.edu\share\dispatch\USERNAME
      • MAC Users: smb://its.iup.edu/share/dispatch/USERNAME

    If you are not connected to the VPN or logged into a VCL session when you are off campus, you will receive this error: 

    403 - Forbidden: Access is denied. You do not have permission to view this directory or page using the credentials that you supplied.

    When accessing this share from the VPN, you will be prompted for your username and password. Enter your username in this format: IUPMSD\username —substituting your username. For the password, enter your IUP network password.

    See How to Map the Standard IUP Network Drives for information on mapping drives.
