Connect to WebDAV with Nautilus on Linux

The Nautilus file browser -- the default file browser on distributions like Red Hat, Fedora and Ubuntu -- has built-in support for DAV folders.

  1. From the main desktop, go to Places > Connect to Server.
  2. For Service type, select Secure WebDAV (HTTPS).
  3. For Server, enter the name of the TeamForge Lab Management server, e.g., $external_host
  4. For Folder, enter /home/user, where "user" is your user name.
  5. You can leave the User Name, Port, and Name to Use For Connection fields blank.
  6. Click Connect.
This creates an icon on the desktop, which brings up your home directory when accessed.
