Dreamweaver's support for WebDav is touchy and always has been.  Have you read and followed the configuration instructions here:

ya know, i hear that a lot.  i like webdav but it always gives me so much grief that i end up going with ftp.  I'll read the above link and see where my problem may lie.

Without seeing your site definitions or server config, my guess is going to be a specific port declaration is the issue (at least that's the most common DW gotcha with WebDav).

ok, that's just retarded!  webdav should be simpler.
I'm going to publish with ftp.

Commented:
LOL.  Yeah, FTP/SFTP is fairly well supported in Dreamweaver but they really make you jump through hoops to publish with webdav.  Sorry to be the bearer of the bad news.

not so much bad news...more disappointment.  i mean if you're gonna come out with the next greatest thing, at least make it work and make it easier than the same ole thing you're replacing.

i'm just sayin...
