Description Matěj Cepl 2013-05-14 12:37:39 EDT
Description of problem:

matej@wycliff: ~$ gvfs-mount davs://matej@luther.ceplovi.cz/dav/
matej@wycliff: ~$ gvfs-ls davs://matej@luther.ceplovi.cz/dav/
Palm Sunday.pdf
matej@wycliff: ~$ gvfs-copy projekty/import-ldif/carddav.ldif
Error copying file projekty/import-ldif/carddav.ldif: HTTP Client Error:
Authorization Required
matej@wycliff: ~$

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Actual results:
not able to copy to WebDAV mountpoint which requires authentication

Expected results:
it should just work, and ask for credentials if required.

Additional info:
This is just a clone of the upstream bug, which is however very present in our current RHEL-7, and I believe that especially in the enterprise environment it could be useful to fix it.

WebDAV backend is still a bit mentally unstable, but I cannot say I am able to reproduce this bug constantly anymore. Closing as WORKSFORME.

    matej@wycliff: ~$ gvfs-mount davs://matej@luther.ceplovi.cz/dav/
    Error mounting location: Not a WebDAV enabled share
    matej@wycliff: ~$ cadaver https://luther.ceplovi.cz/dav/
