Wireshark capture

May be the problem is on the provider's side. The tcp dump may help eliminating this option.

I tried logging into my WebDAV with curl on the console. 

andreas@notebook:~$ curl -I -u USER:PASS --basic
HTTP/1.1 200 OK
Date: Fri, 11 Jul 2008 11:34:04 GMT
Server: Apache/2.0.55 (Debian) JETServ/2.2.18 CM4all-ModComa/0.4.6(libcoma/ CM4all-Ticket/0.2.3 DAV/2 mod_apreq2-20051231/2.6.0
Set-Cookie: sid=[Nobody needs to know]; path=/
ETag: [USER]
Content-Type: httpd/unix-directory

But if I try to display the folder it's this:
andreas@notebook:~$ curl -u [USER]:[PASS] --basic
<title>409 Conflict</title>
<p>The server encountered an internal error or
misconfiguration and was unable to complete
your request.</p>
<p>Please contact the server administrator,
 [no address given] and inform them of the time the error occurred,
and anything you might have done that may have
caused the error.</p>
<p>More information about this error may be available
in the server error log.</p>

In the header you can see they are using cm4all - is there a known problem with some browsers?

I'm no moz developer, but am interested in getting Weave to work with WebDAV.

The wireshark capture isn't very helpful because of SSL.

But your curl example is interesting, looks like Weave is expecting directory indexing to be available.

I just installed the 0.2.3 version of Weave - the problem persists:
but now it displays "invalid username and/or password", which is 100% not true...

No fix in 0.2.4

This does not appear to be a Weave bug.  HTTP error 409 means the server has some rule that prevents Weave's requests from being processed.

See here for more information:

But with Linux I can mount it with davfs2 and on windows with Novell's NetDrive...

Weave uses a GET request with a directory for sign-on.  Most other WebDAV clients avoid using GET for directories (collections) and use PROPFIND instead.

This part of the WebDAV specification defines that GET *may* succeed but does not have any correlation to the collection:

Comment 10

Weave tries to stick to plain HTTP where possible, and only use additional WebDAV commands when necessary.

The WebDAV spec (linked to in comment #9) says it doesn't change the semantics of GET for collections, which means HTTP semantics apply.
