We are currently working with three WebDAV-enabled servers as follows:

WebSTAR V v.5.3.2 on MacOS X 10.3.4

Apache on MacOS X Server 10.3.4

BEA Weblogic (supporting WebCT Vista) on Solaris.

Using WindowsXP & 'My Network Places,' we and our various clients and other constituencies are consistently seeing a "double login challenge" in all three cases. We don't see this issue on Win2K Pro or MacOS X.

First, can anyone confirm that this is a "Microsoft not following standards again" issue?

Second, can anyone suggest a work around that will unburden WinXP WebDAV users from the necessity of meeting this challenge twice?

Thanks for any light shed on this issue.
