WebDAV / Proxy Interoperability
There are a number of proxies available that
are not familiar with the new HTTP methods
specified by the WebDAV protocol. As a result,
these proxies can block the HTTP request,
which interferes with DAV operations.
This page lists all known proxies and
a status specifying their interoperability with
With this page, we hope to pressue proxy
developers to implement the new methods
specified by RFC 2518. It would also be nice
to allow administrators to configure
additional methods, enabling future HTTP-based
protocols such as DASL or DeltaV.
Some broadly-used clients affected by broken
proxies are: Outlook Express (using HTTPMail;
Internet Explorer's Web Folders, and Microsoft
Office 2000. Some popular, DAV-enabled web
sites that are affected by broken proxies are
MyDocsOnline, and Sharemation.
