WebDav and HPUX

Hi,
can anyone help me? I need to pick up and send files to a webdav server from hpux.
I thought the easiest way would be to activate dav in my apache and mount the http side of server where I need to exchange data with

does anyone have experience? or maybe there is a better tool? even so, I believe apache should be able to do the trick
thanks for helping

Re: WebDav and HPUX

You cannot "mount the http side" on HP-UX unless you have a tool that can interface between the HP-UX kernel and the WebDAV server.

Linux has a feature called "FUSE" (Filesystem in USErspace) which allows an easy way to build such tools. HP-UX doesn't have anything similar as yet. To make such a tool, you would probably have to implement a new HP-UX kernel driver; or a WebDAV-to-NFS tool, which would be somewhat similar to the old pfs_mount (which HP-UX admins loved to hate).

As far as I've understood, Apache can only be another WebDAV server, not a WebDAV client.

But it looks like you only need a WebDAV client for HP-UX. In that case, this might be the solution:

(Note: you must also install the packages listed as "Run-time Dependencies", else the package won't work.)
