Subject: mobile-org, webdav, can't push (password not accepted)

Hi, I need a little help with mobile-org and webdav. (I need to use webdav because I live year-round in China, and the last time I tried, dropbox was not accessible from the mainland. In any case, I prefer to keep the data local.)

I've set up the webdav server following the instructions here:


This guide suggests two tests: connecting to webdav at the command line using cadaver, and using "connect to server" in Ubuntu's nautilus (Ubuntu 12.04). In both of those tests, I can authenticate successfully to the server.

In Emacs, I made sure the org files I want to sync are under org-directory, and I think I set up the rest okay according to:


Org Mobile Files: Hide Value
[X] org-agenda-files
[ ] org-agenda-text-search-extra-files
   State: STANDARD.
   Files to be staged for MobileOrg. More

Org Mobile Directory: Hide Value /scpc:hjhmbrg@
   State: SAVED and set.
   The WebDAV directory where the interaction with the mobile takes place.

Org Mobile Inbox For Pull: Hide Value ~/Documents/mobileorg/from-mobile.org
   State: SAVED and set.

But pushing from orgmode refuses to accept the password. I know I'm typing in the correct password because it works with cadaver and "connect server."

I also tried the staging approach. Same problem. The org files are staged successfully. Then there's a pop-up window for the OpenSSH password, but again, if I type the exact same password I used with "sudo htpasswd," it fails to authenticate.

Note again that it is *not* a general webdav problem -- I can authenticate by other methods, but whatever org is doing to log in, it isn't working.

Any ideas?
