Manual Connect without Website?

I would like to automate the connection process to MyBookLive when remote, over the internet.

 

When I was using Mionet, it would start and automatically make the connections and then automatic synch software could access the drives. How do I do that now with WD2go? It seems that currently I have to interact with the WD2go website to create the 'WebDAV" connection. Is there some way I can connect my drives when the PC starts up?

 

Thank you,

John

Not that I am aware, at least is not possible with WD2Go.

That would be a good idea, the best that you could do is to put a shortcut for the wd2go web page on your desktop.

Hmm, well thank you for the confirmation that I'm not just missing something.

Re: Manual Connect without Website?

Isn't there some kind of script process which WD2go is using to make the connection?

i.e. If they published that couldn't we make a script file which simply does that command? I appreciate that they have made that command simple with a web interface. But for automation purposes we need the command which needs to be run. I suppose it might be in the web page source code, but I am now approaching my technical limitations.

 

Any web programmers out there who could toss me some steps to do this?

 

Thank you,

I hear that WD2GO uses WebDAV, and my iPad has Numbers which connects either to their iCloud or a WebDAV site/user/pass... Surely there would be a simple address we could use to connect to our WD My ... Live drives? I can't imagine this huge market would have been missed by WD? (living in hope)
