Escaped absolute path not valid

Description (last modified by dkocher)

I'm trying to connect via WebDAV to our internal WebDAV server, and I'm getting a lot of errors with connecting as well as navigating the server.

When I try to connect, I repeatedly get "abs_path requested" if I put anything at all in the New Bookmark "Path" field. If I leave this blank, it works, but I get no file listing. If I then use the Go command to switch to the path I originally wanted, I can successfully move to that folder.

Opening any of the folders from that path then returns

escaped absolute path not valid.

and displays nothing. I can successfully connect and browse this server using the Transmit WebDAV client, as well as the Finder.

Any ideas?

  • Architecture set to Intel

I have the same problem. Their are a couple folders on a server that I can't open. I get the

escaped absolute path not valid

too. I can brows them from the finder or directly from safari though. On Mac OS X 10.6.3.

Will think about switching from Slide (deprecated) to Sardine for a more robust WebDAV implementation.

I can replicate this issue with a filename that contains a [ that is not properly escaped in the response from a Microsoft-IIS/6.0 server, see #2931. What are the filenames of the folders in this case here?
