By default, Pydio Cells exposes a WebDAV protocol endpoint via the main gateway. You can access it with valid credentials at the following address: <public-URL>/dav/.

All requests are then forwarded to a preconfigured dav specific port (see pydio.json config file or ./cells config list). This port is managed by a gRPC service that exposes a WebDAV handler based on golang.org/x/net/webdav library and wrapped with Pydio Cells authentication and logging layers.

This webdav access can be used to “mount” any accessible workspace as a network drive on the user’s desktops (windows / mac / linux).
