  • 1. Renew SSL
    I'm trying to export the CSR to renew our certificate, but i'm getting an error from Windows. In the IIS Certificate Wizard window, it tells me 'Failed to Generate the Certificate Request. An internal error occured'.
  • 2. Giving users limited mgmt rights
    In Windows 2000, there was an Operators tab when you chose Properties for a Web Site. In Windows 2003, it seems to have disappeared. I want to give some user limited admin rights on Web site management, without giving them Admin rights to the entire system. What can I do?
  • 3. Trojans and spyware
    For some reason, Microsoft does not address trojans and spyware. I have had the IST toolbar infect my explorer browser and had to switch to Netscape. Microsoft does not care because they think that they have the only operating system but Linex is on the horizon and if you guys piss me off one more time, I will take the plunge. This system of getting help is a joke. It is like the blind leading the blind. I never get a response and I have not even found the issues that I posted. You guys never get back to me, well one day I will not get back to you. You need to address these problems with something other than suggesting the name of spyware removers. They don't work! If you run four of these removers you get four different bunches of spyware. And it does not help that the Internet Explorer cannot be removed. In fact, it is the ultimate virus. I can't fight you guys but I don't have to support you either. Paul James
  • 4. VPN
    I am not able to access the internet via IE after loggin on to my network using my standary microsoft vpn connection. I am still able to access the internet using my aol account, but IE will not connect. When I disconnect the vpn, IE works fine. I have a feeling this is a security issue? Anyone know?
  • 5. 1 logon per username
    Dear All, one of my experiences was VMS operating system from which NT/2000 belong to, and one of security's features was logon's number setting per username, so if I perform a logon with a set of user/pwd another with the same set of user/pwd elsewhere in the world cannot perform a logon until I logoff from my session. Please anyone of you could give me an help to implement this feature in NT / 2000 (parameter, policy,..) Regards Alberto Brivio

PROPFIND from WebDAV clients to IIS recently gets 405

Postby Van Ly » Sun, 06 Mar 2005 16:40:29 GMT

Hello,

I've been working with WebDAV on IIS 6 on a Windows 2003 Server box.  My 
client program and also other WebDAV clients such as DAVExplorer were able 
to connect and retrieve properties of files on the W03 box.

Recently our I.T. installed a bunch of security patches onto the box.  And 
the WebDAV clients that I use now get a 405 (Method Not Allowed) whenever 
they attempt a PROPFIND command on the server.  DAVExplorer actually 
doesn't even connect now since the first thing it normally does is to use 
PROPFIND to get a subdirectory listing.

Are there any settings on the Web share that I'm not aware of?  The Web 
share currently has Read/Write/Browse turned on.  The actual directory on 
an NTFS has Full Control granted to the "Users" group which should apply to 
all.

Thanks,
Van

Well,

some guy used webdav to change all the security settings 
on a brand new 2003 server install.

he created an admin account and disbabled access from the 
network for others.

I turned off anon access for ftp, which I can keep that 
way, and www, which I want anon access for eventually.

What else should I do?  Is there a patch out for this?  I 
ran windows update *prior* to this hack, and I've since 
run the baseline security analyzer.  I'm about as up to 
date as I can find.

TIA

3.405 Error with WebDAV - affecting OWA

We've recently run the transition pack to move from SBS Premium to
seperate components, all still on the same server at present. Since
doing so we've been unable to use the Outlook Web Access premium
client. I've tracked this down to IIS returning a 405 HTTP Verb is not
allowed when a HTTP SEARCH request is made to IIS. The log file for IIS
shows the following:

I'm not sure as to whether this is an issue in IIS or with Exchange
(hence posting similar question here and Exchange newsgroup)
As far as I can work out SEARCH is a WebDAV request - what is the best
way of checking if WebDAV is working correctly? And does anyone have
any ideas on how to rectify this?

Thanks,

5.problem with webdav client Microsoft-WebDAV-MiniRedir

Hi
I have a problem with web dav client for 
xp:Microsoft-WebDAV-MiniRedir/5.1.2600 
It does not show the displayname but the url of folder, which is not the same.
This is what happens:
I've mappen the web dav drive to my network places. If i open explorer, 
browse to networkplaces and click on the drive. The subfolders displayname 
get the last part of the url as displayname and not the <displayname> property
If i make a shortcut and then opens it through that path, it uses "Microsoft 
Data Access Internet Publishing Provider DAV" which displays it correctly.
They recieve exactly the same response 

Is there any fix for this, and if not, can i force a certain client to be 
used always?
