HI Experts,

I am having a requiremnet where I have to access some file in my application.
Now i was thinking to use the DSoFramer Ocx control for showing the file in the browser. as I will be storing the files on the server I need to have a access to the documents using a URL. So i thoguh webdav will be a better solution (I dont know much about webdav, just someone from my team suggested I am trying to use it)

My requirement is User should be able to search,view, edit or delete the documents in the ASP.NET applcaition. Along with the same I have the security levels on the document which is read only, modify and Admin.

So my question is it possible for make the webdav internet accessible having this security containts. I am really strglling with the security of the webdav.
I tried making it anonymous I am able to open a document in the activex control but I am not able to save it. Also due to anonymous access the webdav is accesible t anyone which i dont want.

I hope you got my problem, any pointer towards a different solution is also expected.
Also code examples to work with webdav is also welcomed.

PS. Client already rejected sharepoint which was my first solution to store the files.

    I'm not an expert on WebDAV, but for the work that I did, I used a library from  It made working with WebDAV very easy.  They have a 30 day trial license, so you can download it and play with it.  They also have good examples.
