Webdv connection issue

Hi experts,

I installed nextcloud on my Raspberry PI 4 ( Raspbian lite), web/ios/android app runs very well. I uploaded all files like pictures/videos to my 4TB external hard drive.

now I have a network issue.I open http://192.168.1.xxx/nextcloud/remote.php/dav in browser, it says “This is the WebDAV interface. It can only be accessed by WebDAV clients such as the Nextcloud desktop sync client.” ,but I can’t add it into my Kodi (running on firestick)

then I tried to map a network drive in Windows 10, it looks like it can’t find the server by 192.168.1.xxx , but I can ping this IP address.

I check webclient in services, it’s running.

Thank you for any input.

If you have a windows client please first test the access with the windows file manager. I think the problem is your configuration-url or Kodi and not your Nextcloud. Exclude error in extcloud with testing on a normal desktop client.


Thank you, devnull.

I follow the link you shared, still not working.

I open http://192.168.1.xxx/nextcloud/public.php/webdav in chrome, it pop-up a window to input user/password. I tried all of users,but all failed. I’m sure all accounts in nextcloud system are correct.

try with proper webdav clients, winscp or others can connect to it. Windows sometime has some problems with their implementation. User and password do not work if you have 2FA, then you need a dedicated app password for that purpose.

Start reading at “Mapping drives with Windows Explorer”

You can configure it in one minute.
If it does not work you have problems (e.g. network) with all webdav nextcloud clients.
