Windows Vista

Note: Connecting to your Webdisk with Vista can be unreliable. There is a patch from Microsoft available. SSL support for WebDAV is not functioning properly in Vista yet. Please be patient as many connection attempts may be required.

Same instructions apply with the private SSL but instead of using the https://box###.HostMonster.com:2078, you can also use https://www.yourdomain.com:2078. Make sure to replace 'yourdomain' with your actual domain name.
