ReadyNas, WebDav, and "Method Not Allowed"
I have a ReadyNas Duo network-attached storage, which I access via WebDAV only due to some permission conflicts if I use different protocols to write files to it. Given that Windows does not support WebDav properly in my case, I installed a WebDav client called BitKinex. I configured it to point to my share and guess what: "HTTP: Method Not Allowed (/)" error. This is the dialog:The problem is that BitKinex, by default, points to the root of your server. In ReadyNas case, it has different shares, and you must point to the right share to get it fixed. In order to do that, right click on the WebDav connection and select "Properties". Go to "Site Map" and update "/" with your share name (in my case, "/documents").Then it works fine.
