Accessing Logfile on ctrlX with tail program

Hi,

I'm writing a log file on the controller with the CXA_FileAsync functin blocks and this works fine.
I also can access the file via the web interface of the controller. (/plc/run/linux-gcc-x64/data/Messages.log)

Now I would like to open the file with a tail program which automatically shows new entries in the file.
I tried to establish a webdav connection via windows explorer, but it doesn't work.
Using a webdav client like WinSCP works.

Here a screenshot of what I've tried:

Has anybody an idea? Or is there a better way to access files on the controller?

Did you try the full path mentioned in this post?

For me it worked to connect a ctrlX COREvirtual to the path https://localhost/solutions/webdav using the map network device function:

choose "Map network drive..."choose "Map network drive..."

set up network folderset up network folder

That would be exactly what I need, but when I try this I get an error.

When I try it in Edge Browser I also get an error after entering credentials, maybe you have another idea?
