I do have access to a web-dav server, and I configured it using "Add network Places" in my local XP machine. Can anyone let me know what tools are available if I would like to edit files on server.
Now you can edit Microsoft Office files on your server if you have Microsoft Office installed on you client XP machine. Note that your server must be Class 2 compliant and must be located on site root: http://www.webdavsystem.com/server/documentation/ms_office_read_only
If you map a drive to WebDAV server than any application will be able to read and edit files on your server.
