The WebDAV protocol is based on, and extends, the HTTP protocol; Egnyte currently provides WebDAV based programmatic and command line access to the /Shared and /Private folders on the Cloud File Server (CFS). This article describes how you can connect to Egnyte programatically via WebDAV.
In another article, we describe how to connect with Egnyte via our public RESTful APIs. You can also access our developer's page for more detailed information about these REST APIs.
WebDAV access is limited to Admins and Power Users.
Our WebDAV service supports basic file operations such as uploading files, creating folders and modifying the folder structure through its protocol methods.

cURL, a popular project, provides both a client library and a command line tool that can be used to access Egnyte over WebDAV. Other client libraries are also available for most programming languages and platforms.
