Hi, Windows has got two different WebDAV clients: 1) "Webfolders", a combination of an Explorer extension and an MDAC data provider, implemented as MSDAIPP.DLL, first distributed with IE5, and 2) "WebDAV Mini-Redirector", shipping with Windows XP, mapping a WebDAV share to a filesystem (drive letter). The Mini-Redirector is extremely buggy, and Microsoft seems to be unwilling to do any bug fixing before Longhorn (so not any time soon). The Webfolder client is relatively robust and is being updated with new products, such as Sharepoint and Office 2003. I've got a list of Webfolder versions and known issues at <http://greenbytes.de/tech/webdav/webfolder-client-list.html> and I'd appreciate to hear about 1) listed issues being reproduced to be present or fixed with a release I couldn't check yet, and 2) issues not listed there yet. In particular I haven't had time to trace the authentication issue, so feedback (traces, problem description, DLL versions) would be appreciated.
