I am trying to manage my android device with DavDrive Lite, which hosts a local file server. The "Connect to server" dialog box in nautilus 3.6 doesn't have the option to type a username and password. It looks like this:

  • Have you tried: user:password@ip.address? – nanofarad Dec 27 '12 at 1:47
  • Already tried that, didn't work. – phillips1012 Dec 27 '12 at 2:10

It's a simple solution but did you try adding a trailing slash to the end of the server location? (ex. davs://server.location.com:0000/ instead of davs://server.location.com:0000)

I couldn't connect to my FTP server from Nautilus 3.6 until I added the trailing slash.

If you type the address directly if it requires authentication it will ask for them. Example that I used and had a request of information is ssh://ip.address login for remote

  • Doesn't work. It might be a bug with the app. – phillips1012 Dec 27 '12 at 4:29

Try adding the port number at the end.


Example ssh://

and it will ask you the username and password.

I tried it and it worked.

Hope this helps.
