Mount WebDAV as drive in Windows 8

    I'm trying to mount a WebDAV share as a drive on Windows 8. I've tried setting up WebDAV server on both Windows 2012 and Debian Linux, but both yield the same error when attempting to mount from client.

    I have verified that the Linux WebDAV works through cadaver-command, it authenticates successfully with the credentials given and I am able to download files. I can also use a browser to access it successfully from client using these credentials. So WebDAV server seems to work.

    Windows 8 client however gives me this error:

    C:\>net use * http://10.0.0.5/webdav/
    System error 67 has occurred.
    
    The network name cannot be found.
    

    I get the same error if I try to mount using Windows Explorer. "/webdav/" is the subdirectory I have configured for WebDAV access on the server.

    There is no firewall blocking access to server. As I mentioned I am able to connect using browser, so network is not the issue.

    Are there any additional steps required to get this working and/or am I doing something wrong?

    Edit: Logs from Apache says the following (hostnames has been changed to protect the innocent):

    ==> /var/log/apache2/other_vhosts_access.log <==
    debian1.my.net:80 10.0.0.4 - - [13/Jul/2013:17:53:00 +0200] "OPTIONS / HTTP/1.1" 200 229 "-" "DavClnt"
    debian1.my.net:80 10.0.0.4 - - [13/Jul/2013:17:53:03 +0200] "OPTIONS /WebDAV HTTP/1.1" 200 193 "-" "Microsoft-WebDAV-MiniRedir/6.2.9200"
    debian1.my.net:80 10.0.0.4 - - [13/Jul/2013:17:53:03 +0200] "PROPFIND /WebDAV HTTP/1.1" 405 584 "-" "Microsoft-WebDAV-MiniRedir/6.2.9200"
    

    I'm also able to access WebDAV using .Net and SharpBox.

    Any way to map WebDAV with SSL as network drive in Windows XP?
  • Alex S

    I'm trying to map WebDAV with SSL as a network drive in Windows XP. (I've been at this for several hours) I can read the share just fine using a browser and with Network Places, but it refuses to mount as a network drive.

    I've tried it using the Windows explorer interface and net use.

    Net use with the \\server@ssl:443\webdav method gives System error 53. https://server/webdav gives error 67.

    Any help would be appreciated.
