WebDAV, which port?
« on: August 27, 2011, 02:35:32 AM »


I just applied the upgrade and enabled WebDAV for my share.

I am wondering how should I connect to the WebDAV server, the port 80 or 443 (over SSL) don't respond to WebDAV commands. I looked at the list of opened ports (using nmap) and couldn't find which corresponds to WebDAV.

I also tried setting up a user, unsuccessfully.

Could you enlighten me?



Code: [Select]
mildred@kylae:~$ sudo nmap -p- agrippa-1.local

Starting Nmap 5.50 ( http://nmap.org ) at 2011-08-27 11:27 CEST

I got webdav working by using Bitkinex. Windows 7 doesn't support webdav out-of-the box (like XP/Vista).

There were some german instructions on DNS-325 forums which worked for me at least. They are very easy to follow, as I don't speak german myself  ;). And don't be a fool like I was, and started to follow the instructions straight from the beginning, since first are instructions for XP and Vista (which are pretty much the same), and lastly for Windows 7, which requires a client (instructions used Bitkinex, so did I) in order to access you NAS.


Also, remember to configure an account for webdav, since it isn't configured by default (you can use an existing one, just give webdav permissions).

Thank you, I found the information :)

The port number is 443, and only secure WebDAV is accessible.
The URL I'm using is: davs://webdav_user:password@agrippa.local/webdav/Volume_1/
One could also use: https://webdav_user:password@agrippa.local/webdav/Volume_1/

(you need to create a user which has webdav access)
