Thoughts from a software engineer, systems hacker and Linux gubernāre.

IIS

WebDAV

For remote access to files and "network drives". Was used to replace FTP with something that can have a certificate slapped on it. This was done on a Windows Server 2008R2 Enterprise SP1 box.

Security Notes

Fucking Windows Services who knows.

Installed Roles

These are just what happened to be installed on the machine I'm documenting, these don't necessary all apply.

Web Server Setup

In the IIS Manager I created two "Sites" one bound to port 80 ("Informational Site") the other to port 443 ("WebDAV Drives"). They are both pointing at I:\wwwroot which has a simple information page about the different WebDAV shares. The root folder needed read/execute permissions for the local "IIS_IUSRS" group to function properly. The shares do not seem to have the same permissions restrictions.

In the site bound to port 443 with a valid certificate I created a bunch of virtual directories each pointing at one 'share'.

Global Configuration

Informational Site

Nothing special I just crafted an index.html that explained how to connect and use the WebDAV shares.
