WebDAV Advanced Options

Custom User Agent: Some WebDAV servers require a specific user agent string to be passed with every request.

Verify Certificate: If https:// is specified in the connection address, the app will ensure that the connection uses TLS. Setting this switch enforces the TLS certificate check and the connection will not proceed unless it passes.

Auto Disconnect: Enabling "Auto Disconnect" will ensure that this remote server is automatically disconnected when FileBrowser is closed.
