Who has a good tip to make a remote network source locally available with Webdav?

Ghostcloud works fine for me.

Marvelous, just perfect. This app is available in the app store which does install (currently having some problems with installing apps from open repos.) Installation worked out en I can connect to a webdav server very straight forward and works flawless. Thanks!

Well there is an application called "Cargo-Dock" in the official store that can handle remote webdav sources. Its a tabbed filemanager (maybe comparable to "norton commander" but in a modern way)

If you want to get the remote source as a part of your filesystem you will probably have to go through some command line things.

Edit: Please correct me if im wrong but i dont think that davfs2 (which is needed to mount webdav sources) is available on a standard Sailfish phone. There are however some versions at This affects only the second part of my answer :)

Thanks for your reply and insights. davfs2 Looks promising and exactly what I need. However I downloaded davfs2 from openrepos to the SD card of my device. But when I Choose install it Sailfish X shows and exclamation mark with the notification "Problem with installing davfs2" and I unfortunately I am not that skilled yet on this platform to understand what is wrong. (I do have the option to "allow untrusted software" enabled.

Cargo Dock might be a good option too, but I have no understanding of command line things (yet)

Raised a ticket with Jolla Support to get more info about my install problem

davfs2 wont work, kernel on X doesnt have the necessary supported module. Perhaps the community build can add it, or Jolla ;)
