Hi Mairi,

The short answer is that FrameMaker WebDAV functionality does not work very 
well at all.

Hello All,

I'm working in a large(ish) and growing team of writers, and we need to 
start using some kind of distributed access control. Can anyone give me any 
feedback on the in-built WebDAV workgroup functionality within Frame version 

Our Catch-22 situation is that we don't currently have WebDAV support in our 
environment, and we're told that we'll need to buy a new server if we want 
it. In other words, I can't test the functionality until we've already 
committed to using it.

- Are there any issues or known problems with the workgroup management 
- Does it support any kind of version control, or is it purely access 
- If you've used it, do you like it? Why or why not?
- Is there any intrinsic reason that this has to be on a different server 
from other data servers (I'm assuming the requirement for a new server is an 
internal IT-management issue, rather than anything technical)?  What are the 
minimum hardware/software requirements to support this?

Thanks for any feedback you can provide!
