Labwebs and Hermes Web Space Accounts
Labwebs and Hermes are servers where accounts are hosted for students enrolled in specific classes. Labwebs accounts are generally for students in Computer Science, Web Development and Web Services programs, while Hermes accounts are for students in the Education programs.
Labwebs and Hermes accounts are reserved for students registered in specific courses. Students do not directly request them. Instead, professors who wish to utilize this server space for their classes submit a request to have accounts created for their students at the beginning of each semester. After the accounts are created, professors inform their students of how to access and upload to this web space.
Students are granted 10MB of disk space for Labwebs and Hermes accounts. Additional disk space is not available, and requests for more space will be denied. If you are a Labwebs or Hermes account owner and you run out of room, delete unused files to free up disk space.
If you are unable to log in to your Labwebs or Hermes account, verify you are using the correct user name and password:
- User Name: Same as your Connections user name
- Password: Your 7-digit student ID number
- To access your web space and view the files you have uploaded, open your browser and
labwebs.webster.edu/userid, replacing userid with your user Labwebs user name.
- You will be prompted for a user name and password.
To upload files to your server space, you will need to use a file-transfer protocol (FTP) program, such as WS_FTP for Windows or Fetch for Mac. Be sure to type labwebs.webster.edu or hermes.webster.edu as the server or host name, depending upon the type of account.
Aside from ensuring you are using the correct settings for your account, the IT Service Desk is unable to provide support in how to use an FTP program. If you need assistance, please contact your instructor.
