Windows 10: What is "Jackrabbit Webdav Server"? Why is it wanting my password?

    What is "Jackrabbit Webdav Server"? Why is it wanting my password?

    Recently, when clicking on various links that I have stored in an Excel spreadsheet, I get a Windows Security pop-up box saying that my destination is asking for my name & password box and states that the request is from "Jackrabbit WebDAV Server".

    It goes on to say that my name & password will be sent "using basic authentication on a connection that isn't secure". I have been closing the box without entering any data and I am then transferred to my desired destination.

    What is Jackrabbit? What's with the unsecure connection? How do I stop this?

    I did a search on the Forum's site and it came up with no issues being reported, so this may be something well known and/or harmless, but "unsecured connection" doesn't sound good.

    Thanks in advance. - Ron79

    • What is Jackrabbit?

    The Apache Jackrabbit™ content repository is a fully conforming implementation of the Content Repository for Java Technology API (JCR, specified in JSR 170 and 283). A content repository is a hierarchical content store with support for structured and unstructured content, full text search, versioning, transactions, observation, and more.

    Sounds scary to me, do you use Java?

    • What's with the unsecure connection?

    As you put it "my destination", is not secure. What I've seen is, this crops up when somehow a microsoft office 07, 10, and 13 application tries to use an unsecure connection.

    • How do I stop this?

    There may be a way but you will need to work in the registry, first go over this KB article: https://Office application opens blank from Sharepoint,WebDAV or site when it is HTTP |

    The area you want to concentrate on is: Step 1: Configure WebDAV Redirector on the client. Skip the Windows XP and Windows Server 2003 part and go to the Windows Vista, Windows 7, and Windows 8 To enable Basic authentication on the client computer, and study the steps. You may be adding a key. BasicAuthLevel [some systems already have the key but it's set to 0 ]. Before you start create a restore point: System Restore Point - Create in Windows 10 Then complete the steps from the beginning of the Vista, 7, 8 section.

    • Here's a heads up:

    1.) I've seen that the BasicAuthLevel can exist in your registry but it's set to ( 0 ) which causes the problem you're experiencing. Then all you have to do is change the value by right clicking on it and left click on Modify then enter a 1 or 2 in the value data box.

    2.) It says to use a value of 2 for the BasicAuthLevel value but this is for secure and non secure SSL connections, I haven't found anything as to what is meant by non-secure SSL .

    I did take a look at my registry and found it's set to (1) 1 - Basic authentication enabled for SSL connections only: One (1) is what I'd go with.
