WebDAV iPad: How is this done

There are a number of ways to make this work. By creating a WebDAV server on localhost 8080. Also, users may try using WebDAV to open and view files from the MyCloud App. Another way is by using iWork on the iPad to connect with WebDAV and here is how it  happens :

  1. Firstly go to My Documents and then select Copy to DAV in iWork
  2. Then in the WebDAV Sign-In dialog box, fill up the Server Address, User Name, and all other credentials and then press Sign in.
  3. A list of  folders and documents will be shown on the Server
  4. Select the document you want to copy and then press Copy
  5. This will upload the file to the WebDAV server.

Another way to transfer documents between server and the iPad is by this way –

For doing this, you need to have access to a WebDAV server. This way you can transfer documents between the server and your iPad. Also, if you want then you can also open and edit them on the server.

 For Copying and transferring files from a WebDAV server to an iOS device.

  1. Click on the Files app on the Home screen,
  2. Then navigate to the bottom of the screen and find the Locations list.
