?

And what is a WebDav? Do you have links, descriptions, etc?

I have no signature again... Cry

If a packet hits a pocket on a socket on a port,
and the bus is interrupted as a very last resort,
and the address of the memory makes your floppy disk abort,
then the socket packet pocket has an error to report Biggrin

My suggestion would be

webdev.
Something like KompoZer.

From Google

webdav.org

What is WebDAV?
Briefly: WebDAV stands for "Web-based Distributed Authoring and Versioning". It is a set of extensions to the HTTP protocol which allows users to collaboratively edit and manage files on remote web servers.

It isn't a particular application, just a type of app, like a word processor or database.

WebDav is a protocol...

...not an application. A webDav client (IMO) would allow you to access the files the computer like they were on a network share. WebDav can also be coded into an application itself so the app does the communicating between itself and the WebDav server.

http://www.webdav.org/projects/

There are few apps/client listed on the above link that could be usefull, but use Java. If someone could leverage the Java now supported in \CommonFiles\Java in the PA directory structure to run the Java apps you could run one of those apps/client portably.

Edit: one posibility is to use Dav Explorer which uses a batch file to launch the .jar file. You could recode the .bat file to use a relative path to the \CommonFiles\Java\bin\java.exe executable to launch the .jar file. (Sounds good in theory, haven't tried it out...)

http://www.davexplorer.org/download.html

Edit2: I was able to launch the Dav Eplorer client using the method explained above. Just change the batch file to use a relative link to point to the java.exe file using ..\..\ etc. and "navigate" to it.

BTW: If you're using WinXP (and possibly Vista) you can mount a WebDav resource using the Network Places stuff (could possibly be buggy however).

Use the directions on the top of this page:

There's two small problems

There's two small problems with the Windows implementation of WebDAV:

1) File size is limited to about 45 MB.

2) Opened files are copied to C:\Documents and Settings\LocalService\Local Settings\Temporary Internet
Files\Content.IE5\… (in XP) or C:\Windows\ServiceProfiles\LocalService\AppData\Local\Temp\TfsStore\Tfs_DAV (Vista / 7), where they remain even after files are closed again. These files are accessible only with admin rights, but that can be too much already.

Therefore, a portable WebDAV-client would be great to have (the German c't magazine has an encryption solution for USB sticks that works without admin rights by setting up a WebDAV server for the encrypted files, that would also benefit nicely from this ...).

FileSizeLimitInBytes

1) File size is limited to about 45 MB.

There's a limitation in Windows Vista and 7.

You can increase the registry key FileSizeLimitInBytes up to 4 GB.

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\WebClient\Parameters]
"FileSizeLimitInBytes"=dword:ffffffff

But this isn't a portable solution on strange computers, unfortunately.

something like WebDrive

I just want something like webdrive software http://www.webdrive.com/ ....
This software allow you access to a Webdav and FTP Servers. The problem is that is not free and is not portable

That software makes bold claims.

It says it can open and modify files on an FTP server without downloading them. I'd like to see how that works.

advertizing is one thing

your knowledge and some portion of common sense is other matter Wink

it means just, that general folks do not notice that they downloaded, modified and uploaded a file when using wbedav, it kind of does it automatically in background.

In this moment I still remember there was some software introduced by someone recently, which claimed to write protect your usb stick by simply running some small file on the stick.... If you read the advertising connected with this 'software', well you realize that it is probably based on freedom of speech and written word and....

Or do you know someone who did loose 30kg of body weight in 2 weeks when signed for this special diet scheme in the ...magazine?

Webdav client portable

A helpful answer to the OP 's question is WinSCP Portable at https://portableapps.com/apps/internet/winscp_portable

It has pretty solid WebDAV function available at time of this post.

PortableApps.com Apps page https://portableapps.com/apps doesn't list the WebDAV feature available at time of this post.

This might also help people still looking for answers on the topic Portable WebDAV at https://portableapps.com/node/160

I know this thread is ancient but hopefully this can help someone nowdays as currently FTP access is being phased out by some online storage services in favour of WebDAV.
