In OS X Server 10.8, WebDAV access does not work for "Local Network Users" or for Guests. It does work for "Local Users".


To see for yourself, in File Sharing, turn on WebDAV access for Public. Turn on Guest Access.


On another machine, using Finder -> Go menu -> Connect to Server ->


Try to sign in as a Local User, then as a Local Network User, then as a Guest. Network Users and Guests pass the authentication dialog, but fail opening a Finder window with the message: "There was a problem connecting to the server "". Contact your system administrator for more information."


Does anyone else see this problem? Any fixes?

Mac OS X (10.7.1)
