Subject Re: [users@httpd] webdav problem?
Date Wed, 11 Feb 2004 17:25:23 GMT
Jim,

XP doesn't along too well with Apache Server based WebDAV installation.

Here is are couple of things you can try:

1) Trying connecting to the webdav folder using IE (instead of
networkneighborhood). IE -> File -> Open -> (Check "Open as WebFolder")

2) Seems like no authentication is required on your WebDAV server. So try
using the follwing syntax:

http://anyuid:anypasswd@your.webdav.server.dom

the userid/passswd can be anything. I have to do this on some of my XP
machines :(

3) Use Litmus to test the WebDAV complaince:

4) Use webdrive  instead of XP's native WebFolder capability
http://www.webdrive.com :)
