That error means that the PROPFIND isn't allowed.
Since you can checkout from another computer I guess your server config
is ok. But somewhere in between something rejects PROPFIND requests.
Either a firewall, a proxy or ...

Make sure that you have configured every device in between your computer
and the server properly.

If you can't configure those devices yourself, try using https instead
of http - that will encrypt all requests and firewalls/proxies can't
reject them anymore.
