Freaking Yay!!! Hope it's before my 2 months .me trial ends. (Rather 57 days and counting actually) :)

Thanks Ken!

Hi all,

I just got 3-way syncing (ie., desktop webdav server, laptop & iPhone) to work using Digest authentication.

Now i can get on with my highly 'focused' (not) life.

If anyone's still interested, the critical things that made it work are given below.



1) Set up apache and webdav (OS X 10.4) according to Manas Tungare's awesome instructions here (including the 10.4-specific instruction in the Comments section below the main article):

2) In /etc/httpd/httpd-dav.conf, I have the authentication block set up like this:

AuthType Digest
AuthName WebDAV-DigestRealm
AuthUserFile "/usr/webdav.digest.passwd"

I have the <LimitExcept> field set up like this:

require user USERNAME

It *didn't* work until I added PUT (and Basic didn't work for me without PROPFIND)

4) i set up the password file to match the above, using:
sudo htdigest -c /usr/webdav.digest.passwd "WebDAV-DigestRealm" USERNAME

5) I also had to specify the ServerName in /etc/httpd/httpd.conf:

6) Finally, it helped to clear the old Basic authentication info on each device, e.g., by deleting the entry from Keychain, or Unregistering in OF Sync prefs.
Hey, thanks for sussing that out and sharing the details!
