thanks, but it did not work at my test clients - I had already found that
page, too.. ;-)
here is a similar workaround:

Kind Regards,

I looked around on the web a bit and found a workaround that might work: 

The steps: 
   1.  Go to “Add a Network Location…”
   2. Insert your webdav ressource in the following format:
“\\mywebdav.server@SSL\dav“, insert (if applicable) your username by
“Connect using a different username” - and now, your shared folder
should appear :)

Hope it helps :)
