How to use WebDAV to access your HUB storage

WebDAV is the Distributed Authoring and Versioning extension to the standard HTTP/HTTPS web protocol. It allows a client to browse a remote filesystem, usually with a graphical browser that makes it appear that your files are on your desktop. You may access your hub storage using only the secure version of this service (HTTPS). We do not support HTTP. Most modern computer platforms support HTTPS transport for WebDAV with either small adjustments or freely available software.

Linux/Unix

If you use the KDE graphical desktop environment, you can access your hub storage with the Konqueror browser by typing the special URL webdavs://webdav.habricentral.org/ into the Location field of the browser. It will prompt you for your hub login and password. Thereafter, you traverse your home directory by clicking on folders and you can drag and drop files to your desktop.
Cadaver is a text-mode WebDAV browser. It can be used if it is compiled with SSL support. Invoke it with the command cadaver https://webdav.habricentral.org/ and it will prompt you for your hub login and password. You can then use it in a manner similar to FTP.
If you are using Linux, you can use the davfs kernel module to mount your hub storage area as a local filesystem.

Macintosh

MacOS versions 10.4 and higher support HTTPS transport for WebDAV using the Finder. To access your hub directory, select the Go menu in the Finder and choose "Connect to Network Server". Enter the URL https://webdav.habricentral.org/ into the address field. You will be prompted for your hub login and password.
MacOS versions lower than 10.4 do not have support for HTTPS, but a free client exists. Download Goliath and install it on your system. Invoke it and use https://webdav.habricentral.org/ as the address to connect to. Note that you may also use Goliath on newer MacOS platforms as well.

Windows

Windows XP systems have native support for accessing WebDAV storage via HTTPS, but it may be disabled by default depending on how your OS was configured. Try these instructions first, and then check the next set of instructions to enable WebDAV. To access your hub storage,

  • Double-click on the desktop icon called "My Network Places".
  • This will invoke a dialog box where you can select "Add Network Place". This will invoke a wizard that you can step through.
  • Select the "Choose another network location" function.
  • The wizard will then ask you for the "Internet or Network Address." In the box, type https://webdav.habricentral.org/
  • Specify the name that you would like to have associated with this storage space. An icon will be created for the hub storage folder. When you double-click on it to open it, you will be prompted for your hub login and password.

Enabling WebDAV in Windows XP

If the steps above do not work, for Windows XP, or you cannot find the named options, your OS may have WebDAV turned off by default. Do the following additional steps and then try to add network storage again.

  • Open Windows Explorer
  • Go to the "Tools" menu and select "Folder Options"
  • Select the radio button "Use Windows classic folders" under "Tasks".

Windows 2003 users cannot access secure WebDAV

There is no support for secure WebDAV transport in Windows 2003. Various workarounds have been suggested, but it appears the easiest action to take is to simply upgrade the OS.

    Hello Is there any way I can connect an external hard drive or even a spare p.c to my home hub and then use it as a storage device connected to the network?

    Network Attached Storage (NAS) devices are a great way to share files and always provide storage in your home. However, if you are just using the device at home, you will surely miss it. Regards: Dissertationmaster Reviews

    It is quite essential to have HTTP with secure socket layer so that Google would not flag that website or portal with not secure tag. As a developer from American Essay Tutors it is now become quite obligated for website to maintain all security measurements so it ensure visitor to have great user experience without ever feeling any sort of discomfort etc

    Have you ever felt really frustrated when it’s nothing left to write on the topic, but you haven’t reached the required amount of pages?We are sure you have, that’s why we think this post is useful for each and every student, who wants to lengthen his paper and the solution is bookwormlab. You might have some thoughts about the ethical issue, but let us calm you down. You are not breaking any moral rules. Haven’t teachers themselves told you not to judge the book by its cover? Same here. It takes 5 pages for one person, and 10 pages for another to elaborate on the same issue. And the main thing is to cover the topic, right? So lets just think of it like help for your laconic style of writing to fit into the required standards.

    After you are pre-competent, your second measure is to receive pre-approved. This is a comprehensive procedure. You will want to submit an application regarding your assets, income, employment history and residency status to some creditor. Obtaining pre-approved is nearly like applying for a real loan, but it occurs before you pick a house.
