WebDAV

I've removed advertising from most of this site and will eventually clean up the few pages where it remains.

While not terribly expensive to maintain, this does cost me something. If I don't get enough donations to cover that expense, I will be shutting the site down in early 2020.

If you found something useful today, please consider a small donation.

WebDAV. The web page says it is a "protocol which allows users to collaboratively edit and manage files on remote web servers.". That makes it sound like it's just another FrontPage or whatever, but that is not the case. First, DAV (they often shorten it that way) is a protocol (rfc 2518) , not an application. Think of it as replacing FTP, and because it uses HTTP, you can get the advantages of secure HTTP, can run it through a proxy, etc. Applications that run under HTTP can use this to share files (Mozilla Calendar can use a WebDAV server to share calendars, for example).

Kerio Connect uses WebDAV in its KOFF Outlook Connector.
