Well one nit is that Multistatus is usually 207, not 200, as in the body.
Normally collections don't have getcontenttype, getcontentlength, or
getetag.  I don't know if that's what's throwing off Web Folders.
There are examples of PROPFIND responses that work with Internet Explorer in
my book :)

You can also try comparing to the PROPFIND responses you get querying
directories on www.sharemation.com (where you can sign up for a free
account).  Sharemation runs Xythos software.  Similarly there are other
servers running other DAV implementations that are known to work well with
Web Folders - e.g. anything running mod_dav.  You might be able to PROPFIND

Subject: Strange Problems (Davenport)

My apologies, as I am not entirely sure this question belongs here.


I am quite new to WebDAV, and have run into a few problems.  I've been
staring at this particular problem for quite some time, and am hoping I can
get a fresh set of eyes to have a look.  Basically, when I attempt to open a
web folder (using Davenport as the DAV server), I get the message 'Internet
Explorer could not open .Would you like to use the default view instead?'.


I have tried a slew of changes to the Davenport source code with varying
degrees of success.  In this example, the 'shares' share will not display
properly in a Web Folder view.  If I attempt to view a subdirectory as a Web
Folder however, the subdirectory will display properly in Web Folders view.


I am using Windows XP with IE6 (both fully patched) for the DAV client.  See
the listing below for the request/response.
