Requirements for using BSCW are minimal:
o To register as a user of a BSCW server, you must have a personal email address.
o To access shared workspaces and to download documents to your local computer, you need a Web browser that supports forms and basic authentication. Most browsers do that, e.g. the current versions of Microsoft Internet Explorer, and Apple’s Safari.
o The standard way to upload documents to a BSCW workspace is to use the built-in file upload function of current Web browsers. In case of problems you may have to use one of BSCW’s upload helpers (see 9.5 BSCW upload helpers).
