Hi,
The start, I would follow the following documentation.
Installing WebDAV on IIS 7.5
http://learn.iis.net/page.aspx/350/installing-and-configuring-webdav-on-iis-7/ 
As per firewalls, There are no issues. WebDAV uses port 80, the same port used by HTTP for web access. So using WebDAV means you don’t have to open any extra ports on your firewall.
Make sure to disable Anonymous authentication on the virtual directory and enable on Integrated Windows Authentication. If you don't  users can access all the content on your server anonymously, including restricted content.

Example this is at the SITE level, but you can do it at the virtual path level as well.
<location path="Default Web Site">
   <system.webServer>
      <security>
         <authentication>
           <windowsAuthentication enabled="true" />
            <anonymousAuthentication enabled="false" />

            <digestAuthentication enabled="false" />
            <basicAuthentication enabled="false" />
         </authentication>
      </security>
      <webdav>
         <authoring enabled="true" />
         <authoringRules>
            <add users="administrator" path="*"
               access="Read, Write, Source" />
         </authoringRules>
      </webdav>
   </system.webServer>
</location>
