SAP Portal Drive - HTTPS problem


Dear all,

I would like to ask for your help on an issue regarding SAP Portal Drive. We have an EP6 installation

and we are trying to use Portal Drive to manage KM folders and files.

We are using a dispatcher to redirect our site to HTTPS secure links.

We have also set the URL Generator service to https so that the files and folders can only be accessed through

secure connections.

WebDAV (MS Webfolders) option seems to work fine with HTTPS and prevents users from accessing files

through non-secure connections. When one tries to create an HTTP connection to the KM folders an error

message appears and access is denied. This is the desired behavior.

However, when we try to setup the connections to the KM folders using the SAP Portal Drive we face some problems.

First of all, the HTTP connection is allowed, even though all files and folders have HTTPS links.

Secondly, when we setup HTTPS service connections we cannot seem to create folders or

files and we are not able to rename any items either.

The following error pops up:

"Error 58, The specified server cannot perform the requested operation"

Since the go-live date is Wednesday, this is a rather pressing matter.

I would really appreciate your input on this issue.

Best Regards,

Kontogianni Eleni
