Subject RE: [users@httpd] WebDAV setup on Windows XP
Date Tue, 21 Nov 2006 23:16:10 GMT
There are many other WebDAV implementations for Windows/Java/etc, see:
http://webdav.org/projects/ for commercial and open source options.
You'll find a number of packages are an editor with WebDAV abilities.

 

Your mileage will vary on performance since every link in the chain
between client, network, and server will impact response rates. I've
never benchmarked other clients versus Microsoft network drive WebDAV
performance against Apache, but it shouldn't be too hard to beat. :-)

I've got it working now (sort of). It seems to function, but so far it's
unusably slow. Are there any better alternatives for the Windows
platform?

Webdav in Windows products is broken beyond any hope. Even in Windows XP
Pro it doesn't work with certain combinations of updates and patches.
Also, MS Office products understand webdav. Even they don't work in all
installations as expected. Many a times they start talking FPSE. 
Checkout http://greenbytes.com/

http://greenbytes.com/tech/webdav/webdavfaq.html

Also look at Microsoft KB articles. Search on MSDN for "webdav" "web
folders" etc. 
Overall, its quite hopeless.
For your specific problems there are hacks available on the net.
specifically a module that sits before auth and (de)mangles the
username.

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/# <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.
