Re: webdav over https
oki, i didn't know that, i thought that the webdav client know when the transfer wasn't succesfull, and could reconnect and only fetch the missing part, a bit like the "continue" option of wget.
webdav over https
Why not using webdav secured by https for file transfer?
-all authentications modules support by apache (kerberos/mysql/etc), restrictions by ip, etc
-no need to use a different port than https
-no need to (restricted) shell access
-the client is in the default install of the 3 majors oses
- there is crypto hardware accelerator
- no need to administer a new service
- and many more.
