Web-based Distributed Authoring and Versioning, or WebDAV

The WebDAV protocol allows interactivity, making the Web a readable and
writable medium, in line with Tim Berners-Lee's original vision. It allows
users to create, change and move documents on a remote server
(typically a web server or "web share"). This has obvious uses when authoring
the documents that a web server serves, but it can also be used for storing
files on the web, so that the files can be accessed from anywhere.

Windows XP/VISTA/Windows 7 users

Right click on command-prompt and run as administrator

Run this command:
reg QUERY HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\WebClient\Parameters\ /V BasicAuthLevel

If it does NOT say this information ( for example it says 0x1 )
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\WebClient\Parameters
   BasicAuthLevel    REG_DWORD    0x2

Then run this command:
reg ADD HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\WebClient\Parameters\ /V BasicAuthLevel /t REG_DWORD /d 2 /f

And reboot.

After reboot run this command in a command-prompt (change WIZNAME):
net use x: \\tsunami.thebigwave.net\webdav.php * /user:WIZNAME

Now you have webdav configured.

Using webdav from the root of tsunami is a bit slow, you can speed it up if you
connect directly to a directory.

For example:
net use y: \\tsunami.thebigwave.net\webdav.php/players/WIZNAME * /user:WIZNAME

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Windows users can also use NetDrive from http://www.netdrive.net/ to great effect
To configure it, Click:
New Site
	Site Name => Tsunami
	Site IP or URL => http://www.thebigwave.net/webdav.php/players/WIZNAME
	Server Type => WebDAV
	Account => WizardName
	Password => YOURPASSWORD
	Automatically login when system starts
	Automatically login when netdrive starts
	Drive => Optional set to what drive letter

Once done then the drive letter will be perma mounted in your home directory.

Mac OS X

Setting up WebDAV is simple in OS X:

   1) Click anywhere on your desktop
   2) Go to "Connect to Server" item in the "Go" menu.
   3) In the server address enter:  http://tsunami.thebigwave.net/webdav.php
   4) Click the "Connect" button.

OS X should now connect, mount the Volume, and pop up a Finder window
showing files from that volume.
