OK, here is an early, simplified, totally incomplete, proof of concept:

You'll need to load XML Support and the very latest Zn version.

I tested on Mac OS X against a free application called 'MediaMaster Server' ( ), which gives you a very simple GUI to quickly set up a Web DAV server. I don't know if you are on Mac.

ZnWebDAVClient new
        host: 'localhost';
        port: 8000;
        username: 'johndoe' password: 'secret';
        at: 'foo.txt' put: (ZnEntity text: 'Pharo Smalltalk');
        at: 'foo.txt'.

Right now, you can list the (top-level) files, load a file and save a file. This server returns all files as bytes, I don't know if that is normal.

There are so many limitations that I can't list them all ;-) Have a look at the code, this is just the beginning.

Most probably this won't work for your server: if possible, give me a login so that I can see what goes wrong.
