Creating Publishing Directories (IIS 6.0)
Before setting up your WebDAV publishing directory, ensure that your publishing directory resides in an NTFS partition and be sure the WebDAV extension is enabled in IIS Manager.
WebDAV publishing and file management requires the following permissions on the NTFS directory:
Assigning Write access does not give clients the ability to modify Active Server Pages (ASP) or any other script-mapped files. To allow these files to be modified, you must assign Write permission and Script source access after creating the virtual directory. For information about setting these permissions, see Securing Sites with Web Site Permissions.
WebDAV publishing and file management requires the following permissions on the IIS virtual directory:
You must be a member of the Administrators group on the local computer to perform the following procedure or procedures. As a security best practice, log on to your computer by using an account that is not in the Administrators group, and then use the runas command to run IIS Manager as an administrator. At a command prompt, type runas /User:Administrative_AccountName "mmc %systemroot%\system32\inetsrv\iis.msc".

After you finish setting up a WebDAV virtual directory, you can allow clients to publish to it. For information on how users can connect to the directory through any of the Microsoft WebDAV clients, see About WebDAV.
