I’m experimenting with webDAV as a file sharing tool for off-site access. I’ve read several articles explaining the holes in the different levels of webDAV authentification from basic authentification to SSL Encryption. The problem is that I am not a network administrator by trade, so I’m a little confused.
I’m assuming that DH is enabling webDAV with basic authentification since I didn’t have to do much configuration on my XP client machine (I did have to add a perameter to my registry to get it to autenticate properly). If this is the case, can SSL Encryption be added to the webDAV host for a little added security? I read that Apache offers Apache-SSL but perhaps that already part of your setup. If so, how do I use it with my client machines?
Some people golf. I make movies.
