Subject Re: Access denied WebDAV repository
Date Tue, 27 Mar 2007 15:37:11 GMT
Hi Joakim,

thanks for your answer.
If there were users with less permission than guest, that would be
alright for me.
What I meant is, that even if I make the new user "Repository Observer"
he is still not able to browse the WebDAV repository. I revoked
"Repository Observer" from Guest becuase I do not want guests to be able
to browse or upload to repositories.
Do I have to validate a new user?
