I am using XP Home SP2.

I am trying to Add A Network Place via the wizard. The network place is on a WebDav server.

When I try to login to a web folder on apache server using digest authentication, the login window changes my username to hostname\username after I enter the password and click OK. As a result I am unable to login to this folder. I have also seen this same feature when logging into Samba.

Is there a solution to this problem or do I have to use other types of software to gain access?
