WebDAV

WebDAV implementation in InterSystems Caché

Linux firefox setup

We need to register dav protocol with firefox. To do that:

  1. Type about:config into the Location Bar (address bar) and press Enter.
  2. Right-click -> New -> Boolean -> Name: network.protocol-handler.expose.dav -> Value -> false
  3. Next time you click a link of protocol-type foo you will be asked which application to open it with. Choose LibreOffice: /usr/bin/loffice

Wireshark setup

  1. For local development install Wireshark with loopback support.
  2. Add capture filter: port 57772.
  3. Start capture.
  4. Add display filters:
    • http
    • http.user_agent contains "Microsoft"
    • http.request.method == "POST"
    • ip.dst == xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx && http
