Projects / Davenport


Davenport is a Java Servlet-based application providing WebDAV access to an entire SMB network. This enables users to connect to Windows and Samba shares via WebDAV clients such as Mac OS X, Windows Web Folders, etc. or any Web browser. Workgroups are browseable, and users are authenticated against a domain. WebDAV clients can upload, download, create directories, etc. 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/Samba network over the Internet without requiring a VPN.
