Can't get a secure WebDAV Drive Mapping

Postby uk_martin » Sat Jan 20, 2018 10:52 am

Having read all sorts of articles about WebDAV, I've finally been able to get my NAS Drives mapped to my 64bit Windows 10 running MS Surface Pro 4....well sort of.

I can get drives mapped if I use just the HTTP protocol and connect into port 5005. What isn't happening though is for me to be able to connect to port 5006 using a HTTPS URL. I get to the username / password stage, and when I enter my username and password I get a Network Logon Failure notice.

I've seen the it said that WIndows requires an SSL Certificate, which I have courtesy of Synology, but could it be that this isn't being accepted?

Anyone have any thoughts?

Thanks in advance.

synology DDNS certificate is self-signed. you need certificate authority one. use let's encrypt in security menu

I have installed Let's Encrypt , the web server is running properly.
WEBDAV non-encrypted mode works properly (port 5005)
For WEBDAV https (5006), it can login to the server and view all file names. It can download small files (e.g. .jpg) however, it cannot download any larger files, no matter zip, mp4 avi and etc.

i have installed chain.pem and cert.pem into windows 10 and Mac OSX keychain

but still the problem cannot be solved...
