Dreamweaver, IIS 7.5.76, WEBDav, username/password

Running Server 08 R2 Enterprise, IIS 7.5 and using webdav.  I've created a web site, test.mydomain.com and put in my host header.  I can publish to it using FTP, but not WEBDav.

on the FTP side, I know my UN has to be text.mydomain.com|username and I CAN connect and publish.

on the WEBDav side, I keep getting a prompt that my UN and or PW are incorrect.  They are entered correctly.  I webdav side, I was wondering if I needed to do something special with the UN PW like I do on the FTP side?

any ideas on why I'm getting the error on the UN PW on the webdav side?

I have the correct authoring rule I believe.

thanks

Hi Cliff,

Is the problem only from within Dreamweaver or can you not connect over WebDav with any method?

Try another method to verify the webdav connection.  DW's webdav support is and always has been spotty so I want to make sure webdav is working and correct before diving deep into this.

still no joy.  webdav is enabled.  there is one authoring rule allowing admins to read, write and source, I"m using administrator account, and FTP works to this site.

i think i see it.  I only have anon authentication turned on.  i don't have windows authentication enabled in webdav, nor do i see how to add that.

Windows server config is not my bag.  I'm going to have to bow out and let someone else step in.
