WebDAV and Briefcase

Postby tecnalb » Mon Jun 23, 2008 8:08 pm

I have also got webdav working with OSX 10.5.3. I can browse into sub-folders as well. I can open existing documents, edit, and save back.
The issue I am seeing is that I cannot drag and drop, or create new documents via a webdav folder.
Today I chose 20 documents and 3 folders and dropped them into the webdav "Briefcase/test" The result was very strange:
The folders and docs started to populate into the webav location. I then received an error from OSX and the folders then started to disappear. I was also logged into the browser ajax client and saw the folders come and go as I did refresh. In the end, only the very first folder stayed. The rest were deleted.
The error was "Finder cannot complete the operation because some data in could not be read or written (error code -36)
Now, if I copy just ONE file, then it seems to work OK, depending on the file type. Its very strange.

Curious whether anyone else is finding they cannot setup a network mapped drive to the their Briefcase?
I had success using Ubuntu and mounting with davfs2. However, no luck with XP Professional or Vista. Both XP and Vista report host doesn't exist. The jetty access logs do show some activity from xp and vista -- so something is happening.

vista.log


xp.log

We use a utility called 'red drive' under windows xp, which sort of works.

As I understand it (from this thread) the Vista client won't connect to a WebDAV-folder unless it's root is also WebDAV. Strange design decision by MS! RedDrive seems to work, although it's not really the way I would like it. Netdrive doesn't work on Vista as far as I understand it. And I haven't found any alternative to netdrive that assigns a letter to the drive.
Another workaround would be if Zimbra could make the root answer in WebDAV, to get Vista to accept the server as ok. But I wouldn't hold my breath..

Hi Guys,
I'm using Release 5.0.11_GA_2695.DEBIAN4.0 DEBIAN4.0 FOSS edition and I'm trying to access my briefcase over DAV.

On my client i'm using Debian Linux and gnome's build in dav client (Connect to server)
That seems to work, but I'm unable to write files. I first get the notice the file exists, and then when gnomes tries to replace it it fails by saing file not found.
With CADAVER I get the following errors:

[quote]

bart@bartpc:~$ cadaver -t

dav:!> open http://email.server.com/dav/bart@domain.com/Briefcase

Authentication required for Zimbra on server `email.server.com':

Username: bart@domain.com

Password:

Ignored error: /dav/bart@domain.com/Briefcase/ not WebDAV-enabled:

Did not find a collection resource.

I proposed a patch in buzlilla Bug 24178 – davfs2 can't create/copy files via Zimbra WebDav


[quote user="11447iain"]I'd love to get this working but my testing (on Ubuntu Gutsy with davfs2 1.2.1-3) shows the same error.
It looks like this is an error in the Zimbra implementation of WebDav.
To quote from a posting from a davfs2 author:

Looking at the network traffic with Wireshark, this appears to be what's happening here:



No. Time Source Destination Protocol Info

43 48.780500 192.168.1.153 213.160.120.214 HTTP HEAD /dav/iain%40axiomtech.co.uk/briefcase/g HTTP/1.1

44 48.815706 213.160.120.214 192.168.1.153 TCP www > 44310 [ACK] Seq=3356 Ack=1465 Win=7936 Len=0 TSV=3212532233 TSER=3820620

45 48.821412 213.160.120.214 192.168.1.153 HTTP HTTP/1.1 200 OK

46 48.821457 192.168.1.153 213.160.120.214 TCP 44310 > www [ACK] Seq=1465 Ack=3431 Win=14464 Len=0 TSV=3820630 TSER=3212532234



In 43, davfs asks Zimbra if a file called "g" exists in the briefcase (which it doesn't). Zimbra responds with "200 OK" in 45, which Werner says means that it does exist, so davfs reports that it can't create an already-existing file.
(Note - I think davfs didn't make this HEAD check prior to version 1, which would explain why Miguel was able to copy anc create files with the older version).[/QUOTE]

[quote user="bbarnett"]I've got this working fine (webdav) for the default briefcase, both in XP and under Debian.
However, if someone shares their briefcase with me (let's say "bobs_shared_briefcase"), I am unable to read or write to that folder via webdav. For example, let's say I access my briefcase via Konq with:
webdavs://server/dav/myname/Briefcase
I am unable to access the shared briefcase via:
webdavs://server/dav/myname/bobs_shared_briefcase
Anyone else know if this is possible?[/QUOTE]
I have the same problem, any ideas on how to fix this?

HI, is the WebDAV issue fixed now ? We are just about to order a NE this days and WebDAV is common in our Company. We plan to move it into Zimbra.
Thanks for feedback,
Holger
