IIS 6.2 not responding to WebDAV client RRS feed

  • Question

  • User411536124 posted

    I have a WebDAV client that keeps freezing up during WebDAV sessions to my IIS 6.2 server.  I have only one WebDAV client that is affected, all other clients (WInSCP, etc.) are able to connect and transfer files OK.

    Packet captures show that the WebDAV client is connecting OK, but when it issues a MKCOL command IIS stops responding.  IIS then closes the connection after 2 minutes (the timeout period).

    If I connect over http, the WebDAV client connects OK and is able to issue MKCOL and transfer files OK, this is only happening when connecting with https.

    The WebDAV client's SSL 'Client Hello' packet is:

    No.     Time                    Source                Destination           Length Protocol Src Prt Dst Prt Info

    Has anyone else had anything like this?

    Hi ttblum,

    What IIS 6.2? I never heard this version of IIS. Please ensure it is IIS6 or IIS 7 version. In addition. Do you have any log entry in IIS log? Besides, to ensure the https connection, please ensure the certificate is trusted and your IIS server have the private key. Besides, please check whether the schannel support the SSL2.0 3.0. You could check the configuration in registry or modify the configuration with IIS crypto.


    Also you could check the httperr log in C:\Windows\System32\LogFiles\HTTPERR .

    In addition to allow the MKCOL method in IIS, you could go to IIS manager->site level->handler mapping->select WebDAV->request restrictions->verbs->check all verb or add MKCOL to one of the following verbs.

    Best Regards,

    Yuk Ding
