11.0 Configuring Filr to Support WebDAV on Windows 7

WebDAV is a standard collaborative editing and file management protocol. Novell Filr relies on the WebDAV protocol to edit files, as described in Editing Files with Edit-in-Place in the Novell Filr 1.0.1 Web Application User Guide.

If your Filr users are running a supported client operating system other than Windows 7, editing files works without any problems. Windows 7 must be configured to use a self-signed certificate in order to work with WebDAV.

The information in this section assumes that your environment requires the use of Microsoft Office. If your environment does not require the use of Microsoft Office, see Section 11.1.4, Using OpenOffice as Your Document Editor for WebDAV.
