Can't get simple WebDav site to work

I run a network of about 100 people.  I've been asked to setup something like an FTP site so we can post large files for others to download.  Our web server is a virtual Windows Server 2003 sitting out on the Internet (virtual server provided by GoDaddy).  I looged into the server and followed these directions (http://www.windowsnetworking.com/articles_tutorials/WebDAV-IIS.html)  to a "T", and when I try to connect to the site from inside our domain (the web server is not a member of our domain, completely separated), I connect to a blank folder and can't write or even see a test file I put in the actual folder from the server.  Help!  I just need to somehow create a couple users on the server that people can login as to add content and then one or two users who could login and download from it (just like FTP)...IS that possible and if so, what am I missing???  Thanks in advance.

I'd talk to GoDaddy support.  They are excellent.  Their firewall might be blocking the port.
