sorry to reopen this, but i assume other people might be having the same issue so it's worth reaching out about. I'm on Manjaro KDE, and trying to connect via Dolphin but it keeps either opening an empty folder and doesn't prompt me for a password. I was previously on Windows 10 and was using WinSCP and I didn't think that it would be much more difficult than it was on Windows.

On Dolphin when you add a network folder, and select WebDAV, it asks for the following:
  • name
  • user
  • server
  • port
  • folder
  • use encryption (check box)
it requires every field to be filled out, i wrote
  • yesterweb
  • deathbyindierock
  • cities.yesterweb.org
  • 1994
  • /deathbyindierock
when I select use encryption it says

Code: Select all

the server failed the authenticity check (cities.yesterweb.org)
the certificate is self signed, and untrusted
and then it just hangs with a notification saying examining

when I don't select use encryption is shows the folder is empty.
it never prompts me for a password

and help is much appreciated, even a recommendation for a client that will work would be super helpful
