Davenport WebDAV-CIFS (SMB) Gateway version 0.8.0 (beta)

Davenport WebDAV-CIFS (SMB) Gateway version 0.8.0 (beta)

This is the initial release of the Davenport WebDAV-CIFS Gateway servlet. This application provides WebDAV-based access to an entire SMB network, which enables users to connect to Windows and Samba shares via WebDAV clients.

Workgroups are browseable, and users are authenticated against a Windows domain. Non-WebDAV clients (i.e., "normal" web browsers) can also access the network of shares and download files.

When run over HTTPS, this application provides a reasonably secure means of accessing an internal Windows network over the internet without requiring a VPN.
