I'm searching for a solution on how to connect to my OpenERP-Server (6.1) using webdav.

I was only able to get a connection using third party software like cyberduck. Here it's working with this address:


If I try to establish a connection through Windows Explorer I'm beeing asked for my credentials, but nothing happens.

Is anybody using webdav and Win7? I've heard Microsoft changed a few things concerning webdav... I can connect using a WinXP client without much trouble...

Windows 7 by default will not work with WebDAV and basic http authentication over a non-SSL connection. Therefore:

  • Either you configure OpenERP to use HTTPS
  • Or you enable the HTTP basic authentication as described in Microsoft KB 2123563, add http in front of this link: support.microsoft.com/kb/2123563

Thank you for your help. Unfortunately this didn't help either... This is what I tied: To enable Basic authentication on the client computer, follow these steps: Click Start, type regedit in the Start Search box, and then press Enter. Locate and then click the following registry subkey:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\WebClient\Parameters On the Edit menu, point to New, and then click DWORD Value. Type BasicAuthLevel, and then press Enter. Right-click BasicAuthLevel, and then click Modify. In the Value data box, type 2, and then click OK.

Lisse, Netherlands
End-User. Installed 6.1.1 on a DS412+, DS211+ and DS113J Synology NAS. Reference installation on Ubuntu 12.04/Samsung Notebook. 12-03-2013 In production for Suppliers and Customers, adresbook. 7 small companies. Testing accounting, document management, import and export. Too much showstoppers I haven't fixed at this moment. 06-05-2013 little progress. Migration to v7 impossible because of missing Dutch localisation modules. What I see working is nice, so further testing and asking. Start testing products and warehouse. Happy with this forum and the community.

This looks like a duplicate question of: https://accounts.openerp.com/forum/Help-1/question/6033

If your opinion is different please make your question more specific and specify further.

I think my problem is slightly different as I don't have questions regarding the installation of webdav. My problem ist only access from a Win7 client.
