[size=125]Objective:[/size]
I would like to use the "Add Network Place Wizard" to add the Alfresco WebDAV server.

[size=125]Issue:[/size]
I can access WebDAV through the my Firefox 3.0.5 browser (http://myserver:8080/alfresco/webdav).

However, the capability to add the Alfresco WebDAV as a Network Place (to allow file uploads via WebDAV) is not possible:
— 1) My Computer –> My Network Places –> Add a network place
— 2) Add Network Place Wizard –> Next
— 3) Select "Choose another network location" –> Next
— 4) In “Internet or network address” field enter: http://myserver:8080/alfresco/webdav –> Next

The Client WebDAV wiki page prompted me to do research and I found the following Microsoft Knowledge Base article that seems to outline the issue: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/888123

I then executed Method 2 in the Resolution section of that article and am STILL unable to perform the above 4 steps to add the Alfresco WebDAV server as a Network Place.

This leads me to believe that there is some sort of group policy setting, network/domain setting, or perhaps overriding configuration on the Web Extender Client installed on my Windows XP Professional x64 PC.

I would greatly appreciate any suggestions or comments you may have. Thank you very much.
