7. Although able to create webdisk on Windows OS, but we also found that it might be not compatible with Windows OS. Webdisk is more suitable for Mac OS or Linux OS, Windows OS might get the error stated that unable connect to server or network problem. Please understand that this is bug from Windows but not server problem. If you encounter this kind of issue, we suggest switch to FTP client to upload or download webfiles.
Note: Windows Vista®, Windows® 7, and Windows® 8 require Digest Authentication support to be enabled in order to access your Web Disk over a clear text, unencrypted connection. If the server has an SSL certificate signed by a recognized certificate authority and you are able to make an SSL connection over port 2078, you do not need to enable this.
