    Has anyone gotten this to work properly with Win 7? I can see files and upload to web disk but I am not able to open any existing files or download anything.

    When I try to open a file I get the error:
    Is there some kind of file name issue that I should be aware of? Most of the files are pdf's and their names are similar to My_Company_Name_Inc10-16-2012_17:51:16.pdf.

    If I rename a file that would not open previously to something short it will open or copy over as expected.

    Anyone know what it is that windows doesn't like about the naming convention above?

    After some testing I have figured out that Web Disk doesn't like file names with colons. Is that normal or a bug with the web disk implementation?

    I am not 100% on it, however I believe windows 7 doesn't support filenames with colons. Can you create one normally on your desktop?

    You are right. Win 7 file names can't have colons in them. I have never had a problem with it before because when downloading a file with filezilla it changes the file name on the fly replacing colons with underscores.

    Greetings,

    I figured I would post this here instead of creating another thread.

    In my testing I get the following:

    After enabling Digest in Easy Apache I still get the same message.

    Should this perhaps change to (when digest enabled)

    Could anyone advise why (technically) this is necessary for Win7

    Also a cPanel account using a private SSL certificate (with digest enabled) still gets this message. Does the server absolutely need a non self signed cert.

    Thanks

    You need to enable digest authentication for the account. This is not something in EasyApache. There should be a link labeled 'Enable Digest Authentication' next to each account in the Web Disk interface in X3.

    You will need to use digest authentication if the server is not using a CA-signed SSL Certificate. This is per requirements Microsoft introduced in their Windows WebDAV client as of Windows Vista.

    Ah, I see it now =)

    Can I remove Digest Auth from EA?

    If you are not using Digest Auth for any of your web sites, yes.
