In computer networking davfs2[1][2][3][4][5] is a Linux tool for connecting to WebDAV shares as though they were local disks. It is an open-source[6] GPL-licensed file system for mounting WebDAV servers. For communicating with the kernel, davfs2 can either use the FUSE file system API, or the Coda network file system protocol over sockets. davfs2 uses the neon WebDAV library for communicating with the web server.
