PROPFIND - The remote server returned an error: (501) Not Implemented. Exchange Server 2003

Using WebDAV for exchange 2003. Requesting security descriptor from a public folder, get the error returned:
The remote server returned an error: (501) Not Implemented.

This returns an xml document when I run the same query on a private folder in my personal Inbox.
Any clues appreciated.

Already checked that the url is encoded, and browsing through http://exch1/public works fine.

Used BPROPFIND instead. This seems to work fine.
