Dear all,
I need to mount a network file system from my company. They use, as far as I can tell, WebDAVS - the address of the folder I want to mount starts with https://
After a while I managed to mount this file system on my main gentoo box using either Thunar or nautilus-connect-server and opening the address davs://myusername@someplace.uk/folder1/folder2/
I can see all the files all right in the files manager, but if I try to open and edit them, most look empty...
I wonder if this is because, despite providing the correct password for "myusername" when connecting to the server, it is locally mounted with root only access.
But I'm not sure that's the issue...
Can anyone help?
Thanks!
PS: Mounting on Windows works without any problem

In order to test what mounting this as root would yield, I am trying
Code:
sudo nautilus-connect-server

and entering the same address as above (of the form davs://myusername@someplace.uk/folder1/folder2/).
However, when run as root, nautilus-connect-server tells me this server type is not recognized.
Doing exactly the same thing as a normal user works just fine...
Any idea why this happens?
