WebDAV Server




    With this application you can mount any directory on your phone, including memory card, as a drive on Windows or Linux. You can also use a WebDAV client to browse a phone directory.

    This application has been tested using Windows8 Explorer (should also work with Windows7 but it will not work on WindowsXP) and WebDAV client bitkinex. You can download it from

    Implemented Intents

    You can find a lock setting to specify how the device should be kept awake while server is running. There are three modes available:
    New locks used
    *SCREEN_DIM_WAKE_LOCK : Existing mode. Screen is on so energy consumption is higher. Use this mode if connections is dropped.
    *WIFI_MODE_FULL : New mode. Screen is off so device will use less energy while server is running but data connection can be dropped. It is not recommended to use this mode.
    *WIFI_MODE_FULL_HIGH_PERF: New mode only available on Android >= 3.1. Screen is off so energy consumption should be less than in the first mode. This mode is recommended to save energy but you might find problems so you might to select default lock mode.

    How to connect with WebDAV server using USB cable:

    This can useful when you have USB cable and no network available.
    1) On your phone go to Settings->Applications->Development and set option "USB debugging".
    2) Connect your phone to your PC using USB cable.
    3) Start adb server. On your PC run command "adb start-server".
    adb is a program that you can find on android sdk. Usually you will find it on android-sdk\platform-tools\adb.
    4) Forward needed ports from your PC to your phone. On your PC run command "adb forward tcp:8080 tcp:8080"
    With this, any connection in your pc to will be forwarded to your phone in port 8080.
    5) Run WebDAV server in your phone, open settings and in "Network interfaces" select "Loopback ("
    6) Start WebDAV server.
    7) In your PC connect your WebDAV client to (port might be different, it depends on your WebDAV Server configuration).

    Permissions needed:


    Network permission to enable server to open network communication with WebDAV clients.


    Enables WebDAV server write received files from WebDAV clients on sdcard.


    Keeps phone wake only while server is running. If phone is not wake WebDAV server can not be accessed.

    Problems with big files:

    If you have problems handling big files it might be due to a limitation in Windows webdav client. You can try the following to increase the size of files that Windows webdav client is able to manage:

    1) You have to turn on BasicAuth via regedit to allow accessing the App's server by username and password.


    2) You have to change Window's limit to file size when using the integrated WebDAV client.


    3) Restart windows.

    This allows file sizes up to 4 Gigabytes handled by the client.

    Apparently, outdated since 2015. Couldn't make it work on Android 7.0 + Win10 with password out of the box. Without password only was able to list files or download to PC something like <100MB (FileAttributesLimit registry value was already set to advised value). Attempting to even create a folder resulted in "Catastrophic failure!" lol. Too bad, had high hopes for this one.

    Great but could use SOE new features such as connecting using a URL instead of an IP so the address does not change each time and being able to turn it on when WiFi hotspot is active

    works great, as long as you stay in the main storage. When I try to access the SD card, it only accesses a strange system directory deep in the card. If i try to set a custom default directory it crashes. With this fixed it would be a 5.

    Couple of problems... In Windows 8.1, cannot map a drive through Windows Explorer IF you set a user name and password. You are able to map a drive with Windows Explorer without a user name and password. It does work with WinScp with or without user name and password set. HOWEVER, I was only able to copy files FROM the phone NOT to the phone. Bummer.
