It's true that https would add the overhead of SSL. If you don't care about your data being intercepted and read by others, don't use https. I would classify that as 'A Bad Idea' however. The overhead of SSL is not significant with modern CPUs, and the bandwidth percentage is not that big a deal either. If you're in _exceptionally_ low bandwidth situations (e.g. mobile phone/9600/14400 baud territory) then you would need to assess that more closely.


Cadaver is a webdav client for unix command line. It functions similarly to a command line FTP client in look and feel. It doesn't mount the filesystem as a shared drive/folder.

However, you were talking about _windows_ earlier, no ? If you're mounting filesystems on a unix box there are far wider (and richer) choices available to you.

Cheers,
