NetVault SmartDisk displays the list of options and parameters that you can use, including the section for configuring authentication:config --add|--update --webdav <port> [--block-size <bytes>]
[‑‑preferred-address <address>] [--credentials]…\foundation\bin\smartdisk.bat config ‑‑update ‑‑webdav <port#> ‑‑credentialsReplace <port#> with the port that you are using.

Quest recommends that you verify that the ports are open between the vRanger machine and the NetVault SmartDisk server.To verify that the ports are open, you can use a web browser or another method of your choice. If the port is open, the command returns the status information for the NetVault SmartDisk server. If the port is not open, you receive a connection error from your browser.In the following examples, replace <port#> with the applicable port number, and replace <hostName> with the IP address of the machine on which NetVault SmartDisk is installed.http://<localhost>:<port#>/proc/dedupe/stats.stnzhttp://<hostName>:<port#>/proc/dedupe/stats.stnz
