Once again, I am very sorry for my repeating newbie questions… Probably my issue has a similar background like this one, but maybe not, so I feel better when asking to receive your expertise.
PCManFM-Qt I often have to connect to a WebDAV drive of my employer. Therefore I have put a bookmark into
PCManFM-Qt's bookmarks panel to access this drive more comfortable:
For establishing the connection and mounting the drive successfully, I have to switch on a VPN first.
Probably the way of switching on the VPN does not matter in this regard, but I want to explain it nevertheless. My employer is using a Cisco compatible
OpenConnect-VPN. Therefore I first have to switch on this
OpenConnect VPN connection before I can mount the drive.
Hereby I run the following schedule:
- Obtaining a server cookie by executing a
OpenConnect-command in terminal
- Putting this cookie into
- Switch on the VPN via
Afterwards the desired VPN tunnel is working completely fine. Until here everything works great.
The only thing causing confusion is
Once the VPN connection is established, in
PCManFM-Qt it should be possible to just click on the mentioned WebDAV-bookmark and mount the drive. Unfortunately this does not work successfully. After establishing the VPN and clicking on the bookmark,
PCManFM-Qt won’t mount the WebDAV-drive. Even worse, it will throw an error:
Error HTTP Error: Could not connect: Connection timed out
When clicking on “OK” a further message will appear:
Error The specified location is not mounted
As a dirty workaround I have to reboot the whole machine at this point. After rebooting and reconnecting the VPN (without generating a new cookie),
PCManFM-Qt will mount the WebDAV-drive like nothing has happened before.
Maybe this bug has the same background like this one in the referred question above? Current version is 0.11.3, so maybe this bug would also be eliminated after updating to a newer version?
PCManFM-Qt not detect the VPN already in the first attempt? Why does it require to get the whole machine rebooted first?
I am very thankful for your opinions!
