try this: [url]https://mydisk.se/username/OFdirectory[/url]

My problem is that OF won't ask me for the login so I just get a connection failure message. Arghhhhhh!

Maybe you could first connect it via the Finder and save the Login in the keychain.

I was having the same problem with SwissDisk, so I set up a free account at MyDisk.se and it works just fine.

Here's what to do:

1. Set up the free account at [url]www.mydisk.se[/url] (you'll choose a username and password)

2. In the OF desktop client, go to the sync preferences and replace the swissdisk URL with this: [url]https://mydisk.se/username[/url]

3. Click "Sync Now" (you'll need to enter your new username and password when prompted)

4. Then do the same on your iPhone or other clients.

Bingo, everything should be working as it was before, except you're using mydisk.se (which offers 2GB free storage).

That worked. Quite an opaque way to do it. OF should have a way to enter your login easily, that is a kludge.

OmniFocus does have a place to enter login information, but there's an operating system bug (only in some versions of the OS!) where it won't ask OmniFocus for the password when there's already a password in the keychain, even if that password is wrong. It just retries using the keychain's password, and retries, and retries again, without ever prompting. (This isn't specific to OmniFocus; you can also reproduce this bug in Safari on those versions of the OS.)

I have some ideas on how we might be able to work around this bug (by storing the password somewhere else in the keychain so the OS doesn't see it), but my preference would be for Apple to fix the underlying bug in the OS.

So much for 12 hours!
 
So much for 12 Hours! They are still down, and I pay for my service.
@ $4, you get what you pay for.

I think I am just going to have to set up my own Webdav server
on my gaming server I lease from EVO servers... It is just a PIA
to load the Webdav module and run an apache server on a box that
does not have a webserver running. It is just an exposure.. Small, but
still.. RUnning a webserver just to sync....

down for me too
 
it's not OF. [url]https://disk.swissdisk.com[/url] refuses connections right now.

well, crisis is opportunity, so i'll look into alternatives now.

Yep - mydisk.se all good for me too after my swissdisk failed. Main database and duesoon.ics calendar all seem to be working fine.

Only after submitting a ticket with SwissDisk did I get this email. There is no mention of it anywhere else that I can find.
