[BOOK] Mac OS X, Autoversioning Interoperability, and https

From: Adriano de la Cruz <adriano_at_jps.net>

The WebDAV client integrated into the Mac OS X Finder doesn't seem to
handle https:// URLs. Entering a URL with the http:// prefix works
fine, but when the URL starts with https://, it results in the error
dialog box:

Connecting To Server
Connecting to https://<url>
The Finder cannot complete the operation because some data in
"https://<url>" could not be read or written.
(Error code -36)

The ssl_access_log on the server machine doesn't indicate that ANY
request was received from the Mac, so it seems that the WebDAV client
in Mac OS X doesn't support the https: protocol at all.

Note: the Apple website has a support doc entitled "Troubleshooting
iDisk error -36"
(http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=52381), which
summarizes the errors as a) proxy server configuration, b) incorrect
URL, and c) slow connection speed. I'm not using a proxy server , and
standard http: URLs work fine, including http://test/webdav.org/dav,
and also works when I reconfigure Apache to listen to another port that
is not SSL-enabled (changing the Connect to Server URL from https:// to
http://). My Windows XP computer can connect to the https:// url
without any problem (and both are in the same subnet, using the same
router, etc.).

Unfortunate, since I wanted to restrict access of the Subversion server
to https.

Subversion is running on:
Fedora Core 2
Apache 2.0.51-2.7
mod_ssl 2.0.51-2.7

PowerBook G4 15" Aluminum
Mac OS X Version 10.3.5
