WebDAV keeps asking for credentials


Some of my clients have slightly different issues about WebDAV connections. Some of them are prompted on each file (essentially PDFs and MS Office files), some of them on first connection, some of them only with PDFs. The connection is of course saved in the Windows Credential Manager (fields are already filled in)

I read a lot of thread, tried several solutions but none of them worked for me.

What I tried :

  • This KB
  • Add the site on Internet Options > Security > Intranet > Sites > Advanced
  • Change for Automatic logon in Internet Options > Security > Internet Zone > User auth - Connection (For the Intranet too)

It would be greatly appreciated if someone have news about this very frustrating issue.
