WAF-DEV - Installing and Accessing

This document details how to connect to the Windows Access Facility (WAF).

Interested persons should contact guy.stalnaker@wisc.edu to request a WAF-DEV account. He will forward to the appropriate people to get the WAF-Dev account created. Please provide name and netid of the people who need the WAF-DEV account.

WAF-DEV accounts do not persist (e.g., accounts created in the summer of 2015 no longer exist). If you had an account previously, it is gone and you must request another account.
