If you can open it as a web folder via IE then DAV is working.

The problem more likely lies either in Dreamweaver or in some other configuration such as authentication or permissions.

What Auth method do you have configured and what are the permissions on the content?

Well, my initial thoughts are the user name is a problem in DW - is is very unusual because it contains an @ symbol.  I am using a web server site distribution manager call Ensim Pro and it creates usernames with @ symbols in them.  Typically usernames cannot contain an @ symbol because computer management recognizes it as a reservered character.

Is this the problem for certain?  I am not sure.  Is there a quick way to create a new user with the same exact permissions on the web server using computer management or other tool?

This is the problem.

When you have a userID with an @ symbol in it IIS tries to treat it as a UPN logon and fails.

As far as cloning a user I believe there are some utilities out there but I'm not aware of any way to do it within Windows natively.
