Remote computer with MacOS 8 and 9
In MacOS 8 and MacOS 9 there is no native client to access a Web folder directly, therefore you will need to download a WebDAV (Web-based Distributed Authoring and Versioning) client to access the shared folder. You can, for example, download the "goliath" client from http://www.webdav.org/goliath/ and install it.
Sample screenshots, taken during installation of Goliath, are provided below.

  1. Exit the HP Designjet scan software.
  2. Select Start, Programs, Accessories, then Command Prompt.
