Webdav connection

Discussion in 'Windows Vista Networking' started by Glenn W. Johnson, Mar 16, 2006.

  1. I am having problems with setting up a webdav connection. I keep getting
    the error: "The folder you entered does not appear to be valid.". I have
    not seen any comments on webdav so I am wondering if there are any issues?

    Thanks,
    Glenn

  2. Glenn,

    There shouldnt be any issues with basic webdav access. I'm assuming you are
    seeing the error on the *vista client* while trying to setup a connection to
    the webdav folder. Can you post what is the command which is failing ? (Are
    you opening the folder in explorer or doing anything else)

    Also what sku are you running on the client ?

    Thanks !

  3. Yes, I am trying to connect to a Webdav service using the Vista computer. I
    am running build 5308 and I am connecting by right clicking on the Computer
    window and click the "Add a Network Place". This brings up a wizard. I
    click Next then double click "Chose another network connection" The error
    appears after I enter the http://Server/share in the Internet Address field
    and press Enter.

    Thanks,
    Glenn

  4. Glenn,

    Assuming all the other debugging doesnt reveal this to be a other
    configuration issue, can you send me the network capture (using netmon or
    ethereal) when the operation fails ?

    Thanks ~

    I haven't done it with WebDAV, but I recall seeing a similar error when
    trying to connect to an FTP site through Internet Explorer. When I connected
    through an Explorer (folder) window, it connected without that message.

    I think I was also able to get around it in IE by choosing File > Log On
    through Explorer or something like that. Sorry, don't recall the details and
    not totally sure if it's relevant.

    I guess it was just the first thing that came to mind when prompted for a
    nickname somewhere along the line way back when. I just like the smell of
    puppy breath.

  8. Hmm... maybe you should get that checked out perhaps?
