I have a Sharepoint 2010 server with 2 seperate site collections.  The default site i can map drives to and use the connect using explorer.  The other site i have using https and can't map a drive to it or connect to it using the explorer view.  I have done the following:
1.  made registry change on workstation in the BasicAuthLevel key: no luck
2.  made sure webdav wasn't an installed module in IIS

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

WebDav is required if you intend to access remote SharePoint repository over HTTP via IIS, be aware that WebDav should be enabled on both client and server side.

Hey, I think I have the answer.

Short version from MS Whitepaper

"Do not encrypt Explorer View traffic using SSL. SSL uses port 443, and the Microsoft WebDAV implementation does not work on ports other than 80."


My Full post is here, it has the link to the white paper!

Switching to http worked but i would really love to figure out how to get https to work.  I find it hard to believe the only solution is to make in un-secure.
