4.4 GVFS based external methods
The connection methods described in this section are based on GVFS
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GVFS. Via GVFS, the remote
filesystem is mounted locally through FUSE. tramp uses
this local mounted directory internally.
The communication with GVFS is implemented via D-Bus messages.
Therefore, your Emacs must have D-Bus integration,
This method provides access to WebDAV files and directories. There
exists also the external method davs, which uses SSL
encryption for the access.
Both methods support the port number specification as discussed above.
OBEX is an FTP-like access protocol for simple devices, like cell
phones. For the time being, tramp only supports OBEX over Bluetooth.
The synce method allows communication with Windows Mobile
devices. Beside GVFS for mounting remote files and directories via
FUSE, it also needs the SYNCE-GVFS plugin.
