WebDAV without SSL with Windows 7 or Vista

The Windows 7 Webclient service per default does not allow logins per Basic Authentication over non-SSL connections (like Windows XP does).

In order to do this you have to modify the following registry setting:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\WebClient\Parameters\BasicAuthLevel
Change the value from 1 (which is the default value) to 2 in order to allow Basic Authentication over non-SSL connections.

Restart the Webclient service:
  1. Go to Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Services.
  2. Find and restart the Webclient service.
