Hello HowtoForge Community,
I have been reading through endless documentations about WebDAV, and various tutorials, etc searching for a solution to the bug. Since I wanted to use the WebDAV function of ISPConfig badly. Yesterday I found the solution to make windows xp use the old version of the network devices manager. I had a lot of time today and made a quick how to:
First we create a WebDav user:
Now we can install our WebDAV drive in Windows XP. Go to My Network Places and click on "add a network place"
Click on "Next".
Click on "Choose another network location" and click "Next".
now comes the workaround,
usually at this point you type http://example.tld/webdav/
but to make windows use the old version of the network device manager simply type http://user: firstname.lastname@example.org/webdav/
without the space between : and pass
Type your desired WebFolder name in the input-field and click "Next"
Now make sure to put a check in the "Open this network place when I click Finish." and click Finish
Now type in your user and pass in the inputs again and if you want put a check to make windows remember this.
I hope this helps, have fun
