Note: Please Disconnect the webdav connection when you finish your work, as the webdav session expires after eight hours.
(Leaving a webdav connection open poses a security risk.)
After that time is up, if you have NOT disconnected, you will be prompted to re-authorize via 2FA, repeatedly, until you respond.
If you do not respond, your duo account will get locked.
A possible other option is to use the 24-hour-valid “JWT”. To get one go here
Start WebDrive (from the dock or Hard Drive > Applications > WebDrive)
Click the plus at the bottom left to add your site
Choose Secure WebDAV Server
In the Host Name/IP Address: text box, type the appropriate address:
To access your departmental Web site, type: https://webdav.hosting.vt.edu/www.ABC.vt.edu but replace ABC with the name of your site.
To access your student organization Web site, type: https://webdav.org.vt.edu/www.ABC.org.vt.edu but replace ABC with the name of your site.
In the Username: text box, type in your PID (not alias),which is the first part of your @vt.edu email address.
In the Password: text box, type in your VT password (not your Hokies password)
(If you choose to use the 24 hour JWT, copy and paste it in the password text box.)
(If you have forgotten your password, follow the instructions at Forgot PID Password.)
Enter your Site Profile Name
At the bottom of the click the Mount button.
Another window will pop up stating “Validating mount point”
Enter your JWT (if you have one), or your VT PID password and click OK
