View Full Version : Having trouble getting WebDAV to work on OS X Server 10.6.3

Guys I hope you can help here.

I've got an OSX 10.6.3 server behind a BT Business Broadband Hub router. I am trying to set up WebDAV on the file shares so that they can be accessed remotely. I have set it up according to various notes I've read but I can't get it to connect remotely. Can you help please?

This is what I've done:

On the SERVER:

Enabled Web service in Server Preferences but not started it
In Server Admin I've gone to the Web screen then Sites. I've created a new Site called Remote and WebDAV enabled it. I've created a new Realm called WebDAV and set it so that a couple of the users have read/write via WebDAV rights. I've set the Realm to point to one of the file shares. I've set security initially to not run via SSL and set authentication to basic, just at this stage for testing (I'll lock it down later).

On the ROUTER:

Set (and paid for) a static IP public facing
Created a port forward called WebDAV pointing to the internal IP address of the server, port 80
Enabled firewalling to allow all outbound but block all inbound save for http, https and all specifically port forwarded traffic


Tried to Connect to Server pointing to each of the following:


Nothing will connect to the server - just keeps saying server not available or not responding or similar.

What am I missing here?

Really hope someone can help, I spent hours on this yesterday!

Many thanks in advance guys
