Can I set up a fully public (web) download directory? What is www-public?

You can request the establishment of a fully public directory on your organization's storage area through IT Support. The directory is always named "www-public".

The stored files can be directly linked and do not require a login when downloading from a browser. Permission to write to this directory must be configured by the organization's local administrator.

You can obtain the download link by accessing the directory via the Internet with Webdisk and selecting the desired file with a right mouse-click. The direct download link is available via the menu item "Anzeigen und Editieren, Link zur Datei /Ordner", which you can incorporate into other websites as a download link to the file for instance.
