OK, thanks Kevin for the help. I still couldn't get it working, and with Miguel's and John's input on the forum here, I've decided to post to Bugzilla. I've referenced this thread, and the link for the bug is here.

I managed to get it working under windows, using the novell webdav client Netdrive 4.1, which allows you to map a drive. Connect using the url: https://your.server.address/service/dav/yourlogin/Briefcase

WebDAV and Briefcase

Postby 1739miguel » Tue Sep 11, 2007 10:05 am

I've done some more testing, now using davfs. Here are my conclusions:
- davfs2 0.2.9 works well; It's possible to mount, create, delete, copy files into briefcase dir.
- using davfs2 1.2.2 (latest release) I can mount, delete files, create and delete dirs, but it's not possible to create/copy files. The error is "cp: cannot create regular file `filexxx': File exists". I tried the option use_locks 0, so it wouldn't lock the filename before uploading but the error persists.
Here some log output (opt/zimbra/jetty/logs/access_log.2007_09_11):
192.168.0.138 - - [11/Sep/2007:02:42:55 +0000] "GET /service/dav/miguel/Briefcase/test.odt HTTP/1.1" 200 145936 "-" "davfs2/1.2.2 neon/0.25.5"

192.168.0.138 - - [11/Sep/2007:02:43:02 +0000] "PROPFIND /service/dav/miguel/Briefcase/ HTTP/1.1" 207 2854 "-" "davfs2/1.2.2 neon/0.25.5"

192.168.0.138 - - [11/Sep/2007:02:43:04 +0000] "PROPFIND /service/dav/miguel/Briefcase/ HTTP/1.1" 207 2854 "-" "davfs2/1.2.2 neon/0.25.5"

192.168.0.138 - - [11/Sep/2007:02:43:06 +0000] "DELETE /service/dav/miguel/Briefcase/test.odt HTTP/1.1" 200 0 "-" "davfs2/1.2.2 neon/0.25.5"

192.168.0.138 - - [11/Sep/2007:02:43:27 +0000] "HEAD /service/dav/miguel/Briefcase/test.odt HTTP/1.1" 200 0 "-" "davfs2/1.2.2 neon/0.25.5" -> in this line is the output in server side when the copy error (file exists) happens...

WebDAV and Briefcase

Postby twickle » Sat Nov 24, 2007 4:22 pm

Hi,
i have the same affect (with ZCS 5.0 RC2):
Mounting the Briefcase via Win XP & Netdrive works well.

Under Vista Netdrive doesn't work and neither Internet Explorer nor Windows explorer can mount the Briefcase as a WebDAV Share.
In Firefox / InternetExplorer the "source" of the webdav pages look good if i open the url like it is.
Has anybody the Briefcase used successfully with windows vista so long?
thanks,

Thomas

RC2 is not working for me, can't mount with netdrive anymore.. neither with konqueror/windows explorer or cadaver..
The error is the same on all clients I tested:
501 Method PROPFIND is not defined in RFC 2068 and is not supported by the Servlet API

Is this against the hosted demo, or your box?

Hi,
It's against my box. I made a fresh install of 5.0 RC2 on ubuntu edgy, it seems webdav is not working for me as it was on the previous releases (rc1 and betas)
Thanks

Vista works with webdrive 7.34 client, but with many errors. (duplicate folders, problems with tmp files , utf-8 incompatibilities - you can copy files in folders but not create files - same probems with netdrive...)

If I create file name with space through webdrive client in windows (vista and xp), these space is translated in "%20" string in BriefCase (Zimbra Web Client). Where is the problem? (In webdrive client I set UTF-8). The same problem I have in Netdrive 4.1 and with EE characters in filename?
