The UNSW Data Archive Java applet web-based user interface requires Java to be configured, and your Firefox or Safari browser needs to be set up to allow the Java applet to run.

Contact your local IT Support or the UNSW IT Service Centre (9385 1333) to install the Java application and/or either the Firefox or Safari browsers when using a SOE (Standard Operating Environment) workstation. If you have administrator rights on your PC, you can download and install the Java application and/or the Firefox or Safari browser yourself.

See the How do I configure my browser for Java? FAQ for information on how to configure Java for Firefox or Safari.

See the Java applet guide for further information and other troubleshooting ideas.

Note: Java is not required when you use the Web application. For further information on using the Web application see the Web application guide.
