    help needed with webdav, web folders, IIS & permissions

    I'm trying to setup WebDAV and I am really struggling with it. I want to allow users remote access to their files, but I need a bit of hand-holding to go through setting this up. I think my problem is coming from IIS & permissions, but I'm not sure.
    I have created a web application with it's home directory pointing to the UNC share of the home folders on the network. I also got a handy script which will redirect the currently logged on user to their home share so ideally a user browses in from home to http://extranet.ourdomain.co.uk it will redirect them to http://extranet.ourdomain.co.uk/dfs/home/<currently logged in username> and show the web folders.

    Can anyone guide me through this with permissions, etc. etc.
    Many thanks

    What script?
    I have been doing our webdav work here. What issues you having?
    What DC versions and IIS server version?

    Re: help needed with webdav, web folders, IIS & permissions

    hi,
    basically I just can't seem to get it working, I really some help from scratch:
    we're trying to allow remote access to users' personal files (My Documents) and shared departmental files. I have got DFS setup on the network and I use this to point the web application to the DFS UNC path, eg. "http://extranet.domain.co.uk/dfs/home/<username>"
    I've got Windows Server 2003 Standard DCs with IIS 6.
    I think I've setup trust relationships, but again any assistance right from scratch would be good.
    oh yes.. and here's the script I use:

    <HTML>

    <HEAD>
    <SCRIPT>
    function clicklink()
    {
    link.click();
    }
    </SCRIPT>
    </HEAD>

    <BODY onload="javascript:clicklink();">

    <% ParseLogonUser = Split(request.servervariables("LOGON_USER"),"\",-1,1) %>

    /<any path to root of users' folders>/<% response.write(ParseLogonUser(UBound(ParseLogonUse r))) %>" id=link>open folder

    </BODY>
    </HTML>

    Re: help needed with webdav, web folders, IIS & permissions

    I'm having real troubles with permissions in particular. I am trying to point my home directory to a UNC share on a DFS path. I've done the delegation thingy in AD for the server-to-server trust thinggy majig wotsit.
    yeah.... a howto would be awesome!
    cheers
