Running the WebDav Server sample and using it with the Windows Explorer as a client is really slow. With the WebDav Client sample it is working by far better (aprox. 20x faster).
Is this a known problem?
Are there any workarounds?

Thank you for contacting us.

First of all you should request an unlock key here http://eldos.com/sbb/trial-limitations.php if you don't have a license.

It is a known problem. Microsoft's client is the worst from those I came across. The main difference is that our WebDAVClient sample performs one HTTP request per operation but Windows Explorer performs in average 3 requests per operation. For an instance, if you want to upload a single file our sample will perform only one PUT request, but Windows Explorer will perform LOCK, PUT and UNLOCK request.

How about the build in WebDav access in Mac and Linux?
Do you have an experiance with them?

I don't have experience with Linux but I've tested our WebDAV server with MacOSX client and it works much more faster than Windows Explorer.
