Webdav Confluence Windows 10 Edited


I allow myself to contact you because i would like to use Webdav function from my computer on Windows 10.

Unfortunately, i met an error when i tried to connect network drive to Webdav :

You can see more details in the screen below screen_webdav_error.png

I consulted and applied other article like Unable to authenticate while mapping a WebDAV client network drive in Confluence  but the problem persist....

So, could you please help us ?

Thanks in advance

Best Regards

Kevin P.

Please let me know if you clicked the link for "Connect to a website that you can use to store..." as in the red rectangle below:

Thanks for your return.

So, as you requested, I clicked on the link and here is the message I received :



I also followed your link "Windows 10 + WebDAV...."  :

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\WebClient\Parameters\ BasicAuthLevel to 2 : No Difference


On the other hand "Is the SSL certificate self signed?" : 

I confirm the SSL certificate is self signed , as you can see in the picture below : webdav_screen2 (3).png


Do you think that the self signed certificate is causing of this blocking?

Thanks for your help.

It could be related to SSL as you suggest, but I also found another article that mentions the exact error you are seeing and it says credentials are the issue. The WebDav server expects your Confluence credentials. The article suggests checking that box for "Connect using different credentials" and then putting in the login and password you use for the server WebDav is on.

Please see step 7:Establish a WebDAV Connection to Your Windows Package

I followed your link and visibly the problem persist.
I did several tests in the field "Internet or network address" with the following addresses :
then I clicked on "Next"
I received the same message : "The Folder you entered does not appear to be valid. Please choose another."
Like it was specified in the article, I clicked on OK , I didn't see the "login screen".
