NEW Browser Information
Network EducationWare (
) is usually launched from a web browser page in the distance education
course management website. When a connection is requested, the webserver will
send a file of type application/nwc to your browser which passes it to your
client. If you are using Windows, then
automatically associates with these files
during installation. If you are using Linux, then some special steps need to
be taken for
to launch properly from the browser.
If there is a problem during installation that prevents this association from
being properly created, or if some other application has associated itself with the
"nwc" filetype, then some special steps need to be taken for
to launch properly
from the browser. We will discuss these steps later in this document.
