As an example of the integration of WebDAV under Linux, a configuration of the Nautilus file manager under Ubuntu is shown here.

1.The first step is to open the file manager and then select Connect to Server in the menu on the left-hand side.

2. A dialog box opens in which the server address must be specified. It should be noted that the protocol is not specified https, but davs. After the protocol, enter the server name and then the complete path to the user directory. The server name and the path can be read in the WebUI of ECAS under My profile.

3. Once the server has been successfully contacted, a dialog will appear to enter the credentials. The user name must be the usual login name. After submitting the credentials, the contents of the WebDAV drive are displayed.

Under Windows, you need to do 2 steps to connect a WebDAV drive to your system.

Important: A valid SSL certificate signed by an official CA is required to allow a smooth WebDAV integration on Windows.
