It's gonna be somewhat difficult because, AFAIK, linux does not have
any kind of support for mounting webdav filesystems. There are some
webdav clients, such as cadaver though. Using a client is pretty
clumsy though, it's much better to be able to mount such things. If
anyone is looking for a good linux project, this would be it. Read on.
Right now you can use ftp to see your directory. There is also some
experimental support for mounting ftp servers in linux, I need to check
into how well that works out. You can info on it here:
This may also be a good starting space for anyone wanting to write code
for mounting webdav filesystems.
Also, in the next day or twi the http://www.sgstep.com portal will be open and
you'll be able to check your email, browse your home directory,
upload/download files to your home directory, and do some calendaring
stuff, all via the web. This is all thanks to the openwebmail project.
very nice project. It's gonna be sutomized to look steppish, including
having GNUMail icons.

Yes, I can boost it up to a maximum upload speed of about 1.5Mbs. That
of course, costs more, so I won't do that till it's evident that it is
needed. I don't have any bandwidth limits though, which is good.

Yes, it appears to be working, please try it out both with and without
SSL. It's preferable to use SSL so your password is secure.
