This appears to be the case with the firewall here as well. What I
don't understand (perhaps someone can enlighten me???) is why the proxy
would allow HTTPS WebDAV requests, but *not* HTTP requests? Are the
requests effectively encrypted as well [versus just the content], thus
making it virtually impossible for the proxy to have an opinion as to
whether the request should be allowed or not?
