WebDAV

WebDAV (similar to FTP) is commonly used by designers, photographers and other types of creatives to share large files.

Using WebDAV HTTPS you can easily and securely access your Filecamp instance.

Launch an FTP application (such as Cyberduck, Transmit or FileZilla) and enter your WebDAV Access information.

Notice: Remember to enter the right Port number (8443) and to choose “WebDAV HTTPS”.

Notice: The WebDAV Access feature is designed to be used for initial bulk uploading and occasional bulk downloading of files from your account – we do not recommend using WebDAV as your primary access method.

Mac OS

Use Mac´s own Connect to Server feature to mount your Filecamp instance on your local Mac.

  1. Navigate to any Finder window and click Go and Connect to Server, or press Command+K.
  2. In the Connect to Server window, enter your Filecamp URL, followed by the port number (8443) e.g. https://yourcompany.filecamp.com:8443
  3. When you are prompted for authentication, enter your WebDAV username and password.

Mac OS has now connected to your Filecamp instance via WebDAV and you can use it like any other folder on your Mac.


Or you can use an application that allows you to mount your Filecamp instance as a drive through WebDAV. There are several third-party tools out there that can be used for this, e.g.:

Mac OS:
Mountain Duck (Free trial)
WebDrive (Free trial)
Cloud Mounter (Free trial)
Expand Drive (Free trial)

WINDOWS:

WebDrive (Free trial)
