Yes, it works as expected with http:// prefix.
Thanks so Much!

Lately, I found an Generate HTTP URL extension, which fits for similar purposes when not needed username & pass included in url:

May someone would come in handy.

Good Luck

This issue has been added to the tracker:

I'll send you an email with a development version of WinSCP to the address you have used to register on this forum, once I have anything ready for testing.

But in this case, it may be appropriate to add a switch to display all links with https:// instead. Or simultaneously generate both formats in separate columns / spots within this dialog.

Anyway, Thanks for Your Great Work and Best for my needs WebDAV Manager!

Re: https vs davs

The reason is that WinSCP is registered to handle the dav:// protocol. It cannot handle http:// obviously.

https vs davs

For what reason in new versions is changed from https to davs at "Generate file URL" dialog for WebDAV protocol?

Sometimes it is necessary to copy links from here, and for example paste to another Download Managers. And each time have to manually rename the prefix, because they don't understand davs. Is it really necessary, or better return as it was before?
