Subject RE: [users@httpd] WebDAV works for anything but Windows Vista and Windows 7
Date Thu, 16 Apr 2009 21:32:25 GMT
Vista and I'm assuming W7 have issues with most webdav, 

These are the extra steps on the client I've had to do to make vista work with webdav from
a win server. 

(a) The below update must be applied.  
 
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=17C36612-632E-4C04-9382-987622ED1D64&displaylang=en
 
It is also necessary to have the client machine completely current will all Windows updates
(and client restarted of course).
 
(b) Access through Internet Explorer does not work, the user must access via Windows Explorer:
 
Windows Vista - Map Web Folder:
  -> Computer
  -> Map Network Drive
  -> Connect to a Web site that you can use to store our documents and pictures
  -> Enter address
 
2. Reduced WebDAV Functionality
 
Even though connections will be able to made, there is reduced functionality with Windows
Vista client WebDAV connections.
 
File operations such as, copy, move and delete work but WebDAV enabled clients are not able
to open or save files to the WebDAV location. This includes opening files from Microsoft Office
(Word or Excel).

Sorry, according to the summaries above, it would seem that for Vista it 
may be just the opposite : the port number should /not/ be specified.
However, another of the listed cases may apply :
I see your URL is https://www.numlock.ch/webdav/testshare , which would 
fall in the category "server-discovery" of the above pages.
Suggestion :
- in the server configuration, define an
Alias /testdav/ /webdav/testshare/
- in Windows, try connecting to https://www.numlock.ch/testdav
