    Webdav not working???

    Hi all.

    I'm trying to let students into there My Docs area on our NAS box.

    So, I have enabled Webdav and created a new Virtual Directory on IIS. Ticked the box to use basic auth and selected the default domain ( I know it's not secure, will use https when it works ) go home and try and log in and all I get is the password dialogue box asking me for a password. After 20 tries it still doesn't let you log on. This is driving me mad as I have used this method loads of times before and is a quick and easy way to let students get there my docs.

    I did read a few articles on google about Windows XP SP2 removing basic auth but not sure if this is true.

    Can anybody help me with this please please please ? This is drving me nuts!

    Thanks in advance,


    Ben Straw

    There is a buglet in XP which can stop the domain bit of your username getting through (it tries to log you on as localcomputer\username instead of domain\username and this can happen whatever you type)

    Instead of connecting to http://server.domain/folder try connecting to http://server.domain:80/folder

    This forces it to use the MDAC connector which should then work.

    Yes, we found this too. However, this isn't a problem once you start using https.
