I have a random problem connecting to my new iFolder server with Windows (XP, 7, 7x64) whether it's a fully-patched OS or a clean install. Can connect using openSuSE 11.3 and 11.4, also through the web interface.
Have tried the 3.8.0 and 18.104.22.168 clients from SourceForge and the 3.9 client from Novell's OES11 Gold beta ISO to no avail.
I've followed the directions for setting the Simias log to debug on the client and server, but it doesn't provide anything useful; the server doesn't even record that it's trying to be connected to from the Windows clients in the Simias or Apache log files.
Also tried Wiresharking the connection, but there wasn't anything useful there either; the connection opens up and starts, but then it's like it just dies.
Basically what's going on is when you try to log into iFolder after installing the client, it just sits there for a little bit and then gives the error "An error was encountered while connecting to the iFolder server. Please verify the information entered and try again. If the problem persists, please contact your network administrator." When this happens, the client log says:

The SSL certificate being used is a self-signed wildcard cert.
I've tried uninstalling the client, deleting the Simias folders from the profile/appdata folders, running the dotnet cleanup utility, and reinstalling, to no avail. Googling the issue has found others reporting similar problems with Windows, but no good solutions.
The following URLs are supported in Vibe, and might appear in the table above.
Permalinks are URLs that remain constant over time, and are used to reference individual workspaces, folders and entries. You can use them as bookmarks, or e-mail them to others. Copy and paste them as needed.
If the folder owner has set up an e-mail address for this folder, then you can add entries directly into the folder via e-mail.
Use the WebDAV URL to access a folder directly as a file directory. Applications such as Windows Explorer and Microsoft Office can use a WebDAV URL to directly access the files stored in a Vibe folder.
You can use this URL to synchronize Vibe task and calendar folders to your desktop calendar application.
Folders can also be accessed using an RSS or ATOM Feed Reader or directly from the file system. Copy the RSS URL below and paste it into your RSS reader to access this folder as an RSS feed.
Caution: This RSS URL has been created for your use only. It uses your access rights. Sending this URL to other people may give them access to entries in this folder that they may not otherwise be able to view.
