I’m having a problem with WebDAV in Leopard, and I’m hoping that someone knows something I can do to get it working.
The university gives its staff members off-site access to their shared drives via FTP and WebDAV, as well as a web interface; all three use Novell NetStorage (the university’s IT system is based around an interesting mix of Novell, Sun, Microsoft and Linux server technology). Now the WebDAV service works fine in Windows XP’s Network Places system and I’m able to view my files with no problems. But on OS X, specifically Leopard, it rejects my username and password, no matter what possible combination I provide (whether it’s the username on its own or the username appended with the Novell tree that I belong to).
The NetStorage system we use does support SSL, but I’ve tried it with and without SSL and it still doesn’t work (SSL support was added in OS X Tiger/10.4). But it does work in XP, which is why I’m confused. And, naturally, any options to configure WebDAV are hidden away by the operating system.
I’d appreciate any light that anyone can shed on this, as being able to access files from home would be useful. I can use FTP but WebDAV integrates much better with the Finder.
