WebDAV Service Screen

The Services > WebDAV configuration screen displays settings to customize the TrueNAS WebDAV service.

You can access it from System Settings > Services screen. Locate WebDAV and click to open the screen, or use the Config Service option on the WebDAV widget options menu found on the main Sharing screen.

Select Start Automatically to activate the service when TrueNAS boots.


If you require it, you must choose an SSL certificate (freenas_default is always available). All Protocol options require you to define a number in the Port field. Make sure the network is not already using the WebDAV service port.

To prevent unauthorized access to the shared data, set the HTTP Authentication to either Basic or Digest and create a new Webdav Password.

WebDAV Configuration Settings
