WebDAV is the most popular way of mapping cloud drives on PC and Mac. It is an open standard protocol supported on all platforms. You just need to find a good WebDAV server.

DriveHQ is a leading Cloud File Server/WebDAV Drive Mapping service provider.

In this document, we will talk about how to configure HP Smart (Scanner/Printer App) with DriveHQ's WebDAV Server. The information is also useful in configuring other WebDAV client applications.

Step 1: Get WebDAV Server / URL.

To use HP Smart (Scanner/Printer App) with DriveHQ WebDAV Server, you must have a DriveHQ account first. If you don’t have a DriveHQ account, you can:

- Visit website to sign up for a free account. The free account does not expire, but it has some restrictions.

- If you are an administrator, you might want to create sub-accounts for your users, incl. employees and external clients. A sub-user of a paid Group Account is considered a paid account.

The next step is to create/get your secure WebDAV URL. Log on to website, then from the Start Menu, click "Drive Mapping URL". See the screenshots below. (Desktop browser and Mobile browser).
