I'm hoping a WebDav / networking expert can help me with a problem. I'm trying to copy files to a mounted WebDav location and getting an "Invalid filename" error.
Here is the situation in detail:
I have an iPad app called GoodReader, which provides access to an app-specific file system on the iPad via a web address (e.g., http://192.168.X.X:8080).
When I connect to the address using the places menu, I am able to transfer files to the iPad just fine. However, I want to use a program (SuperFlexible -- same general concept as Unison) to automatically sync files from my Ubuntu 10.10 laptop to the iPad and to do that I need to mount the iPad (e.g., to /media/iPad).
So, I mounted the iPad using this command (there is no username or password necessary):
At first, I was getting what appeared to be permission errors so I changed ownership recursively of all files to my user:group, but now I get the "Invalid filename" error.
sudo mount -t davfs 'http://192.168.X.X:8080' /media/iPad
Why would the connection and file transfer work fine when mounted via the Places menu but not work when mounted from the command line? Am I using an incorrect command line?
Appreciate your help!
