Subject [users@httpd] Re: Making a robust DAV server deployment in an MS world

I was hoping to be able to allow MS WebFolders as clients. When I try to 
connect using WebFolders, I get rejected because WebFolders strips the 
trailing slash (ie. /my/dav/ becomes /my/dav) and Apache sendes a 301 
redirect to /my/dav/ which breaks WebFolders. I fixed that for now using 
a ProxyPass. Next problem, WebFolders tries to execute "something" (FP 
extension supposedly), and as it fails with a 404, WebFolders refuses to 
connect to the DAV repository:

  "GET /_vti_inf.html HTTP/1.1" 404 323
  "POST /_vti_bin/shtml.exe/_vti_rpc HTTP/1.1" 404 337

Does a workaround for this exist? I just tried Slide as DAV server and 
it appears to handle these "special" cases, so I'm hoping that someone 
somewhere has something similar for mod_dav.

Any input much appreciated,
