Re: Digest access to UNC share

You need to first get WebDAV+Basic on local Filesystem working first. Then,
change it to UNC share. Finally, change authentication scheme. The URL I
gave previously should get all this working on IIS6. Some slight adaptations
have to be made for IIS5 since it doesn't support pass-thru as nicely, nor
does it support protocol transitioning (so it is Kerberos or nothing).
WebDAV is basically a protocol over HTTP, so you are really looking at
proper web-server configuration to support your scenario. There are also two
different WebDAV clients, one within Windows and the other within IE, both
with different sets of capabilities.

David, Once again you have found an interesting article. Thank you. I found I was not able to connect to a WebDAV folder across the Internet from Windows XP at all - even if the folder was configured for pass-thru basic authentication or even no authentication (anonymous). Windows 2000 was working fine in both cases. Windows XP was asking for a user name and password, even with anonymous access and was rejecting every user name and password combination I supplied. In the end, while researching whether I might have better luck with WebDAV on Apache, I found an article that refered to Microsoft knowledge base article 298353. This was useful in that it confirmed the problem, but was otherwise the singularly most useless knowledge base article I have come across as it provides neither resolution nor work-around nor a time frame for one. It conveys the distinct sense of "Its broken. Tough! Live with it!" Fortunately, the same article that referred me to the knowledge base provided a work around - add "/." or "/#" to the WebDAV URL when creating the web folder in Windows XP. The full article can be found at http://www.atarex.com/services/support/webdav-msft.shtml. Using that, I can make Windows XP work, so I will revive the project at some point in the future and make use of the delegation information you supplied earlier. I am running out of time now. I will make use of FTP in the mean time. regards, Alan. David Wang [Msft] wrote: > You mean you cannot get WebDAV of a UNC share working when you use Pass-thru > Basic authentication?
