I've been tasked with the creation of a web part that will, ultimately, allow users remote access to files on a server through SharePoint. As the scenario stands, we have a WebDav share set up that points to the file server. I understand WebDav allows access through a firewall, but for whatever reason we get a blank screen whenever we attempt to navigate to the share.
Within the WebPart as it currently is, there is a hyperlink that automatically points a user to a certain directory. This directory is valid and does exist.
Once we click said hyperlink, we get 3 prompts for authentication (which we then fill with admin credentials), and then a blank page.
The address to that page is: http://spproject.pcsb.org/StudentFiles/6t/6t.jr
Are we going about this completely the wrong way? WebDav works properly from a certain test page, but refuses to work properly within the web part itself

Thanks for sharing the post.
I’m trying involve someone familiar with this topic to further look at this issue.

Now we're attempting to use a SEARCH HTML Request to get folders, but the server is rejecting the request regardless of the credentials passed with a 401 Error. We've followed the tutorial listed here

I took a quick look at this and was not able to see what would be causing these 401 errors. If you are still having issues with this and you cannot find an answer from the forum directly, please visit the link below to see the various paid support options available that may better meet your needs.
