    How can I dismount a mounted WebDAV drive from the Terminal? Since I know the command to mount it, I'm sure there's one to dismount, but I can't seem to find it.

    How do you mount a WebDav drive? What setting in apache do you need to serve a webdav drive? is it like iDisk?

    Yes, I believe iDisk IS a WebDAV drive. I don't know how to make one since I don't administer a server, but to mount one you either use the "mount_webdav" unix command or the "Connect to Server" or Cmd-K from the Finder.

    OK, I figured out the answer to the original question. Dismounting is the command "umount". It's not unmount, but umount, which is IMO really weird. Does anybody know how to authenticate from command line? When using the mount_webdav command from the terminal the Finder "Connect to Server" authentication window pops up. This was a surprise, since I assumed that it would be done through command line. Anyone know how to make it that way?
