I am setting up a lab WebDAV server using IIS 6. I am able to access our DFS shares using the user's credentials, using the new "connect to share as authenticated user" feature. Does anyone know of a way to allow users to view their home directories WITHOUT creating a viewable "Users" share? For instance, our user directories reside on E:\Shares\Users\_username_
. Some people would share the "Users" subdirectory. We set up individual shares directly to the users' folders. The share names would be the User name followed by a "$" sign. The share "Smith" would be mapped to "E:\Shares\Users\Smith$", and "Johnson" would be mapped to "E:\Shares\Users\Johnson$"
. I realize that I will probably have to share the Users folder to get this to work, and remove the directory listing permission from the Users folder itself, to prevent getting a listing of all of the user folders. It would be great if there were some sort of script or filter which would automatically route requests from http://webdavserver/myhome/
to the appropriate share or directory.
Have any of you worked up a similar solution?
