    Arrow Connecting to SkyDrive

    I have been using SkyDrive and am hoping to mount a webdav file system in openSUSE 12.1 KDE but I have not been able to figure out what the server address to use since the recent changes to SkyDrive.

    It used to be the address was similar to \\docs.live.net@SSL\<long_id_number> but that isn't working.

    I know there is a sync program that doesn't work with Linux and I have that running on my Windows 7 machine but I want to access the same files as a mounted (mapped) location in Linux.

    Anybody have any luck? I know its changed recently so I hope it isn't completely shut down.

    Hi
    It looks like you can connect with davfs, have a read here;
    http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...ensuse-877054/

    You would need to install davfs fro the filesystems repository;
    http://software.opensuse.org/package...rch_term=davfs

    One problem I have is that SkyDrive includes a "?cid=" with a 16-character code. In some reference, at least for mapping in Windows, it shows this code being part of the server's location, but that doesn't work.

    I have the 16 character code that denotes my account, but I don't know how to put it into the parameters for the URL.

    I ran and got
    Code:

      Password:

    302 Found
    Based on the information I got from my successfully mapped drive on Windows 7.

    Then I tried changing from ".net" to ".com" and got

    I used to have a Box.net account mounted through fstab, but found out I unfortunately removed it. This is what I remember from it

    - You have to add the local situation to /etc/davfs2/secrets, in the box.net case
    Code:
    LOCALPATH                   BOXUSERNAME                    USERPASSWORD
    /home/knurpht/Box          EmailAddressUsedForBox       BoxPassWord
    After that I added this line to fstab
    Code:
    https://www.box.net/dav   /home/knurpht/Box  davfs   defaults   0 0

    Will openSUSE 12.2 include Gnome 3.6, or is it going to have to wait until 12.2+1?
