Problem with WebDav and port 443 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    My windows 8.1 can't connect to my external webdav server running on port 443. I get the following error:

    C:\Windows\System32>net use Z: https://SERVER/webdav /PERSISTENT:yes /USER:USER PASS
    System error 1244 has occurred.
    The operation being requested was not performed because the user has not been authenticated.

    The SSL is self-signed but I've already added the CA to windows' local machine trusted root certificate authority.

    I've configured external webdav-ssl to run on both ports 443 and 444. I can browse the service on both ports without any problem using internet explorer.

    The service on port 444 works perfectly fine:

    C:\Windows\System32>net use Z: https://SERVER:444/webdav /PERSISTENT:yes /USER:USER PASS
    The command completed successfully.

    I guess windows is processing requests to port 443 differently than other ports.

    Thank you
