Places --> Connect To Server --> HTTPS (WebDAV)
Dear forum readers,
I am able to get the Centos 5.5 installation to connect to the HTTPS WebDAV server using the GUI but I am wondering if/what commands the GUI invokes when making the connection. When using the GUI, there is the option "Places". From "Places" you can choose "Connect to Server", which will allow you to connect to a server in a variety of ways. At my office we intend to use WebDAV over HTTPS continually so would I be able to write a script that invokes the same command on log in so that the server is mapped each and every time a user logs in?
I assume this would put an icon/folder on the desktop called 'connname', as illustrated in the images below. I used the letter R when entering the connection name, that is the icon seen in the first image. See screen shots below of the GUI interaction. I am looking to mimic this same interaction via a script and/or command line input. Once I know what commands this GUI interaction is invoking, I could probably figure out the script.
Thanks in advance.
what is being invoked already?
Thank you for the response.
I am inquiring about what processes are invoked by the GUI, already, without having to add on any more packages. I know about davfs, fstab, cadaver, fuse, etc. however, I assume that everything already needed to write the bash script is already installed since the GUI can already carry out the process.
The files are not too large. It will mostly be for report output and Office docs. We have a gigabit backbone with pretty good performance. Thanks for the heads up.
When I run a "rpm -qa | less" i see that cadaver, gnome-mount, etc. are installed, but not davfs or fuse. Any ideas about how the GUI is performing the operations without adding on any packages? Perhaps the gnome-mount has an https option? Perhaps it is cadaver that is being invoked by the GUI? Is there anyway to tell? Did you see the screen shots?
