davfs2 is a FUSE file system driver that allows you to mount a WebDAV server
as a local file system, like a disk drive. This way applications can access
resources on a Web server without knowing anything about HTTP or WebDAV.
davfs2 runs as a daemon in userspace. It uses the kernel file system coda or
fuse. Most propably your Linux kernel includes at least one of this file
systems. To connect to the WebDAV server it makes use of the neon library.
Neon supports TLS/SSL (using OpenSSL or GnuTLS) and access via proxy server.
