In Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick, I could go to the Places menu and click "COnnect to Server" to run a WebDAV server for my NextApp WebSharing Android application. But in Unity, I'm not sure how I achieve the same thing. I tried "Shared Folders" but it says I'm missing plugins. (I uninstalled Evolution and everything related to it, if that helps.)

Well rub my elbows and call me bearcat! I totally forgot about that because of the hidden global menu. Thanks a ton. – Leron May 5 '11 at 7:08
