Setting up WebDAV in F9

I have setup a partition as a webdav partition to access the files more easily on my windows boxes, I am able to connect to the share when i do http://formosa-usa/share, but when I try http://www.formosa-usa.com/share I keep getting prompt for username and password. Below is my webdav conf. file

Alias /share /media/storage

<Location /share>
Options None
AuthType Basic
AuthName WebDAV
AuthUserFile /etc/httpd/conf/.htaccess

<LimitExcept GET OPTIONS>
Order allow,deny
Allow from All
Require valid-user

The host name is "formosa-usa" and not "formosa-usa.com" could that be causing an issue? I do believe I am connecting to the server since it is prompting me for my username and password, but I could be wrong.

On another note, I do notice that I am getting segterms when starting httpd service. I do not know if I should create a seperate thread for this though.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Now I can not even connect to it from within my network. I know it is hitting the server because I see the ip address in the access logs. - - [03/Jun/2008:21:46:28 -0400] "PROPFIND /share HTTP/1.1" 401 521 "-" "Microsoft-WebDAV-MiniRedir/5.1.2600" - - [03/Jun/2008:21:46:28 -0400] "PROPFIND /share HTTP/1.1" 401 521 "-" "Microsoft-WebDAV-MiniRedir/5.1.2600" - - [03/Jun/2008:21:46:28 -0400] "OPTIONS / HTTP/1.1" 200 - "-" "Microsoft-WebDAV-MiniRedir/5.1.2600" - - [03/Jun/2008:21:46:28 -0400] "PROPFIND /share HTTP/1.1" 401 521 "-" "Microsoft-WebDAV-MiniRedir/5.1.2600" - - [03/Jun/2008:21:55:00 -0400] "PROPFIND /share HTTP/1.1" 401 513 "-" "Microsoft-WebDAV-MiniRedir/5.1.2600" - - [03/Jun/2008:21:55:00 -0400] "PROPFIND /share HTTP/1.1" 401 513 "-" "Microsoft-WebDAV-MiniRedir/5.1.2600" - - [03/Jun/2008:21:55:00 -0400] "OPTIONS / HTTP/1.1" 200 - "-" "Microsoft-WebDAV-MiniRedir/5.1.2600" - - [03/Jun/2008:21:55:00 -0400] "PROPFIND /share HTTP/1.1" 401 513 "-" "Microsoft-WebDAV-MiniRedir/5.1.2600"

What could be causing the problem?

AFAIK that the Component Services permissions need to be adjusted for the web-server application.
Have a look at Microsoft guidelines on webdav security here:
HP dv5000 1.8GHz F9......Apple G4 500MHz F8 (dev-box)......ASRock 2x 1.8GHz CentOS 5.2

Thanks for your response, I did look at the support doc, apparently you have to connect to webdav with https. I am able to attach it to my windows server successfully.
