Webdav - Map Drive


#1

I’ve setup webdav through “Goodies” but have been unsuccessful mapping a drive. I’ve tried XP and Windows 7 with no luck. It seems to be having trouble with the username password combination. I know the username and password are correct.

Have you read through the Wiki? It has a tidbit on Windows 7 access issues.

Yes, I had read the Wiki. That was one of the reasons I tried it on XP to eliminate the windows 7 difficulty. The Wiki did suggest something…adding a “#” at the end of the folder. When I did this the popup stated “the server is asking for username and password be sent in an insecure manner (basic authentication without a secure connection)”. Entering my username and password worked. So I think it has something to do with sending username and apssword in clear text. Is there some work around?

Yes, but it’s not fun: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/841215
