Thank You for the advice, Isaac! I think the final version of IE8 arrived a
few days ago?
It's not beta 2 anymore. I did made a few test on a virtual PC, but I didn't
expect them to break the WebDAV HTTPS support.
I shall post it there, but I think this is related to IE8 and not to IIS.
The IIS works fine with older versions of IE. And on computers with IE8 I
can still use "Map Network Drive" to access a WebDAV folder over HTTPS.
I also made a mail support request to MS, but they told me I must call them
on the phone. Maybe I will, but If they ask me to pay for support, I'm
totally not paying them to fix their own bugs!
