WebDAV is a standard collaborative editing and file management protocol. Novell Vibe relies on the WebDAV protocol to operate two key features:
Map Vibe folders as a Web folder on the client computer, which allows access to Vibe files from a WebDAV-compliant file navigation tool such as Windows Explorer or Nautilus, as described in Novell Vibe 3.4 Advanced User Guide.
If your Vibe users are running a supported client operating system other than Windows 7, features that are supported by WebDAV already work as described in Novell Vibe 3.4 Advanced User Guide without any additional configuration.
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 8.1.4, Using OpenOffice as Your Document Editor for WebDAV.
