Setting up WebDAV
WebDAV (Web-based Distributed Authoring and Versioning) is a set of extensions to the HTTP/1.1 protocol which allow users to collaboratively edit and manage files on remote Web servers.

WebDAV support in the Domino Web Server enables accessing file resource type design elements in a Domino database. This allows application designers to work with design elements such as HTML files, images and other file based resources using web based authoring and development tools.

The WebDAV implementation in the Domino Web Server supports, and has been tested with, the following clients; Macromedia Dreamweaver 4.01, Microsoft Office 2000, Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.0x and 6.0, Windows Explorer on NT4, Windows 98, Windows XP, and Windows 2000.
