I would suggest that you allow only secure access (https, port 443) to the web server. I have port 80 turned off and blocked by a firewall. It takes a little more configuration; but I think it's well worth the effort. I have accessed WebDAV via secure web from both Mac OSX and Windows XP. I know nothing of Vista (lucky me), so I can't speak to its compatibility.
