I have a folder that I want to share. I did enable webdav. But I don't get my permissions right. The default view (browsing) to my folder, I want only the read permission. But when I logged with my webdav I want full control. I have tried to edit the web.config file, but it seems not to work.
Is is possible to sepperate the permissions for default viewing en webdav?

not sure about what os are you using if it is win 2k or 2003 server maybe this link helps you to find out what is the problem.

machine.config :master configurations file that control asp.net's operations on the computer.
web.config: configurations about the specific asp.net application setting, every asp.net appl. has their own web.config file.
so if you are working with permitions of iis you have to check out machine.config file permitions
path is
c:\winnt\Microsoft.Net\Framework\v1.0.3705\CONFIG\machine.config it is an xml file and any changes is made in this file needs to be rebooted the machine.

Note : if you have some configirations in your web.config file and same in machine.config overrode the machine.config file...file can mark a element with th allowOverride="false" attribute. this case more specific configuration file cannot override this setting.

and there is a another resource:

take care
