I cannot log in. The server rejects me - what shall I do?

  • Please mind that the BSCW server distinguishes between upper case and lower case characters in user name and password.
  • If you have forgotten your password, you can't change your password in the normal way. For this emergency case, BSCW provides a specific procedure to assign a new password without having to provide the old one:
    • Open the URL http://[your-bscw-server]/pub/bscw.cgi?op=chpwd. On the public BSCW-Server it's the URL http://public.bscw.de/pub/bscw.cgi?op=chpwd
    • Fill in the form with your primary email address
    • An email with further instructions to reset your password will be sent to you — follow the instructions in the email.
