Hello, I would be interested if the attached patch will be included in some release in future? using this patch I could mount webdav shares from a novell server. In the config I had to use use_locks 0 and allow_cookie 1.
without the patch Novell Netstorage shares are not useable at all.

regards dominik

Sorry for the delay. I have bee very busy in real world.

Currently I am working on some bigger changes which I would like to finish before doing a new release.

I am also thinking of changing cookie handling, mainly because some applications require davfs2 to store more than one cookie.

It would be interesting to know why the current code does not recognize the novell session cookie. Do you know more about this or can you send me one of these cookies (maybe in private mail)?

I was trying to connect to Novel's NetStorage which sends and requires cookies.

allow_cookie was set to "1" (verified via debug config) but no cookie was send even though a Set-Cookie was set by the server:

Set-Cookie: novellsession1=x6xXXxx/xxxxxX4XXXXXXXXXXXX=; path=/

The attached patch offers basic working support for those cookies.
