Issue Details

I would like to send files stored in CompactRIO to another CompactRIO using LabVIEW WebDAV functions. 
The WebDAV shipping example provided in LabVIEW was configured to get files stored in CompactRIO from the host PC. Therefore, I am wondering if there is a sample example of transferring files between CompactRIO.



To transfer files from one CompactRIO to another CompactRIO, you must specify a WebDAV server and a client, respectively. 

Through the Software Add / Eliminate tab in MAX, you must install the WebDAV Server software on CompactRIO acting as a WebDAV server and install the WebDAV Client with SSL Support software on CompactRIO acting as a WebDAV client. 

And then, you can perform a file transfer test using the example provided in the following snippet.
