I use BitKinex and it works. Can you try BitKinex? When adding a Http/WebDav location, type just "http://<accountid.tonidoid.com>/" with your tonido id and password.

Make sure you can access http://<account id>.tonidoid.com from outside. Also, make sure you have logged into Tonido, basically when you type http://<account id>.tonidoid.com from outside, you should be prompted for a password.

What URL are you using to mount drives?

Can you try http://<accountid>.tonidoid.com:10001/ using BitKinex?

Is your username/password correct? You can get a 403 if you don't have the right settings.

I am having similar problems. Using somename to represent my Tonido account
My settings show:
Account Name: somename
Tonido ID: somename@tonidoid.com
Display Name: SomeName

Is my Username "SomeName"?

In Netdrive I have tried:
Site IP: http://somename.tonidoid.com/
Port: 80
Server type: WebDAV
Drive: T:
Account: SomeName
Password: xxxxxxxx

This gives error -
"Mounting drive T: failed
Login failed. Please check the internet connection."
Using "somename" also fails

I also set up shares using WebSharePro,
URL : http://somename.tonidoid.com/app/websha ... e/myshare/
User: <guest user name>
Password: <guest user password>

To map a WebsharePro share shared with guests
1. Create a normal folder share in WebsharePro and assign users with upload permissions.
2. After the entry shows up in the shares list, you will see an entry that says "Mount as Local Drive".


I never saw an entry that says "Mount as Local Drive"

It does connect but it shows an empty folder, rather than the files that are there.

If I use a browser with the URL, it shows the files.

I can also get there in the file explorer, by finding via "Network" and I see all the files.

Are the problems because I am in the same network?

I've also tried from another machine running Linux, and have even less success -
There I get the error: "Cannot display location "dav://guestuser@somename.tonidoid.com/app/websharepro/share/myshare
Not a WebDAV enabled share

Try Bit Kinex. While trying to connect to http://somename.tonidoid.com, use "somename" to connect.

Using Bit Kinex, I still see no files. When I connect a datasource, I get the following feedback:

Resolving host name "somename.tonidoid.com" ...
connecting ( somename.tonidoid.com => ip: ##.###.##.###, port: 80)
Connected (##.###.##.###: 80)

This is with User: somename and appropriate password.

I also tried with username and password for user that a folder is shared with.
Output is essentially the same, except

My settings are the same. When I double-click the entry, it opens a window, with the messages as I related in the lower middle pane. If I click on the icon in the upper left pane, I can go to Data Source and choose Connect.

The lower middle pane shows (showing just first word each line)

Resolving...
Connecting...
Connected ...
Fin received
Connection closed

The middle pane shows "/" and "File folder", but nothing more, and clicking this shows nothing. It seems that BitKinex might be working fine, but that the problem may be with some settings on the server side.

I am using a TonidoPlug, with a USB drive attached.

Shouldn't the contents of the directory connected to be displayed in the middle pane?

I've resolved some of my problems. I updated websharepro, and now everything works as documented when accessing from a Windows7 machine. This for Tonido running on a TonidoPlug purchased just weeks ago.

I've tested with NetDrive & BitKinex on Windows7, and they both work fine - I can map all my drives by using my tonido acct and password, or I can map a WebsharePro share by using the guest user name and password.

Still unable to mount as a local drive on Ubuntu machine. Will explore further.

The documentation says:

To map a WebsharePro share shared with guests ...
....

2. After the entry shows up in the shares list, you will see an entry that says "Mount as Local Drive".

This actually says "Mount as Remote Drive", and is a link back to the documentation, not a setting.
