Webdav client for Linux


Hi,

I am wondering if their is a Webdav client (I use Suse) that I can use to access Microsoft Webdav shares?

Regards,

Randy.

There are several:

Cadaver is a command line client,

davfs lets you mount a webdav server and use it like a local disk drive

Also, the current versions of Gnome let you browse webdav servers, just like ftp, ssh, and Windows shares using Nautilus. To do this, open the Computer icon on the desktop, and from the File menu, select connect to server.

I'm sure KDE provides similar facilities, I'm just not familiar with them. Check what webdav access your distribution offers before you try installing something - it might meet your needs.

Yup, it does. Just enter webdav://your.server.he.re in the URL bar (use webdavs://) for ssl enabled servers.

Question for using Nautilus in Gnome to browse WebDAV shares. In KDE, Konqueror allows you to save files directly back to the share(saves it locally and transfers it to the share) automatically. Under Nautilus, it shows all files in the share as read only, and when you edit them, the files are saved on the local system and not automatically transfered back to the WebDAV share. Is there any way to add this functionality into Nautilus, or is it just a KDE thing?

Thanks!

Sorry for the six-month-later response, but this directly pertains to my question.

Do you know how to automate this action on login? (Not simply mounting the davfs partition in /etc/fstab, but doing it this way through Gnome.) I've had read-write issues as anyone except root using mount and /etc/fstab, and this way works flawlessly.
