I've downloaded the latest beta (version 5.6.1, build 4547) to test the new WebDAV feature (thanks for implementing it Smile

The connection is established without problems but then WinSCP doesn't display any remote directory (see attached screenshot).

The root directory should contain a directory named "dav" and the file ".dav_http".
In the log I can see that it detects them but it is not able to transform the information into a directory view.

I don't have such a problem with other programs like NetDrive or a normal web browser.

I wouldn't be surprised if the server-side WebDAV implementation is crap but maybe it is a bug in or an incompatibility with WinSCP that can be fixed?

Thanks and regards,

According to WebDAV DTD, the response element has to contain either status or propstat subelement.

<!ELEMENT response (href, ((href*, status)|(propstat+)), error?, responsedescription? , location?) >

The response in the log contains neither. WinSCP (silently) skips such entries. What kind of WebDAV server is this?
