Description Lukas Jelinek 2014-02-08 19:47:16 UTC
When loading/saving via the "server dialog" (currently unnamed, see https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=74720), some server connection types don't work. Namely:

WebDAV
The server settings are saved but nothing other happens. Clicking on the connection icon does nothing. Double-clicking opens the dialog where the "Login" field is empty.

SSH
A similar situation as for WebDAV but the difference is that all fields in the dialog are lost after re-opening.

Windows share
The same thing again but all fields are saved.

Repro steps:
1) Open LibreOffice and enable LibreOffice dialogs
2) CTRL-O, then click "Servers" and fill out details for an SSH server
3) Click the "OK" button

RESULT: No connection

4) Double-click on the named icon for the connection just filled-in, and (aside from the name), the fields are now empty.

CONFIRMED: fields in the dialog are lost.

Status -> NEW

Access to remote files was rewrited and thus there is no reason to solve this issue. It may be closed.

Thanks for reporting back, Lukas. Close as WorksForMe.
