davfs2 does not support this kind of authentication.

About a year ago a read some Microsoft document about this. It was rather confusing and it looks like I am not able to implement it. For one there is too much information about the protocol missing; two: I have no server for testing and am not going to purchase one, and three: there are a lot of tasks that are more important, in my point of view.

So, if nobody else does it, it won't be done.

I am trying to mount a library using davfs2 but the mount fails.

sharePoint details:
have claim based authentication webAPP with "Trusted Identity Provider" enabled.

Error on mounting:
403 Forbidden: Access denied

Other Findings:
If I were to disable "Tursted Identity Provider" in my WebAPP then I am able to mount the library

Mount Option used:
mount -t davfs http://<servername>/site/Library /mnt/Site1/



(Note: upload size limit is set to 16384 kB, after insertion of the required escape characters.)
