Subject RE: [users@httpd] WebDAV setup on Windows XP
Date Tue, 21 Nov 2006 19:06:04 GMT
This is a well known "feature" of Windows XP Home and later editions.

Workaround: use a port number after the domain, or use a trailing /. or
a /# on any URL to use WebDAV properly in the setup wizard.

    * e.g.: http://www.atarex.com:80
    * e.g.: http://www.atarex.com/.
    * e.g.: https://www.atarex.com/#

Explanation: the :port number on the domain name, the trailing slash dot
"/.", or slash pound "/#" at the end of the URL prevents the bug which
interprets the resource as a SMB network drive.

You seem to be confusing auth_sspi (ntlm) auth with basic auth.  Or it's
an issue with your client - do you have another non-Microsoft dav client
to try?  And see conf/extras/httpd-dav.conf for an example.
