I am looking at finally switching over to Alfresco for document management. One requirement is working WEBdav. I've looked at all the posts/wikis/instructions I can find, but I can't get connect to the server no matter what settings I twiddle.
Does anyone have any thoughts on how to debug this?
I set up an Alfresco server (4.2.1) a couple of years ago. Here are the notes I made for configuring webdav. I hope this helps.
Map Alfresco Drive
1. Enable Basic Authentication - Click Start, type regedit in the Start Search box, and then click regedit.exe in the Programs list. - Locate and then click the following registry key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\WebClient\Parameters - On the Edit menu, point to New, and then click DWORD Value. - Type BasicAuthLevel, and then press ENTER. - On the Edit menu, click Modify. In the Value data box, type 2, and then click OK.
2. Update "Local Policies Security Options" - Control Panel -> Admin Tools -> Local Security Policy - Navigate to Security Settings -> Local Policies -> Security Options - Change "Network Security: LAN Manager authentication Level" to "Send LM and NTLM . use NTLMv2 session security if negotiated"
3. Restart WebClient Service - Type "local services" in Start menu search box. Hit "Enter". - Scroll down in "Services" window to "WebClient" entry. - Right click on "WebClient" entry. - Change "Startup type" to "Automatic". Click "OK". - Right click "WebClient" entry. - Select "restart". - Close "Services" window.
2. Windows Explorer Map drive: - Start Windows Explorer - Select "Computer" - Click "Map Network Drive" - Select unused drive letter - Enter folder name: "http://hostnameort/alfresco/webdav" - Check "Reconnect at logon" - Enter userid and password (check "remember my credentials")
