Microsoft Operating Systems
Connecting to Web Disk
With cPanel's release of version 11.38, Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8 users can now connect to Web Disk through an auto setup script (see instructions above) or a manual connection.
If you are running Windows XP or Windows Vista on your desktop, you may need to download a patch from Microsoft's website in order to use Web Disk.
Connecting to Web Disk with No SSL
If you use Windows Vista, Windows 7 or Windows 8 to access Web Disk over an unencrypted connection, cPanel requires that you enable Digest Authentication. If you have a signed SSL certificate for your domain, Digest Authentication is not necessary.
To enable Digest Authentication:
- Click Enable Digest Authentication. A confirmation dialog box will appear.
- Click OK.
To disable Digest Authentication:
- Click Disable Digest Authentication. A confirmation dialog box will appear.
- Click OK.
