Therefore, the 64-bit applications must use Web Distributed Authoring and Versioning (WebDAV) by using the native Web Client service redirector to connect to a Web server as a Web folder.
- There are currently no plans for porting this deprecated Data Access Internet Publishing Provider component to future 64-bit versions of the operating system.
- The native Web Client service redirector for WebDAV provides support for only TCP port 80. Because of this restriction, you cannot establish a Web folder connection to any Web server that implements WebDAV on an alternative port. Therefore, the native Web Client service redirector does not support SSL for WebDAV communication to a Web server because SSL uses TCP port 443. However, this limitation does not apply to the native Web Client in Windows Vista or in a later version of Windows.
- The native Web Client service redirector only communicates by using WebDAV. Therefore, you cannot establish a Web folder connection to any Web server that implements the Web folder functionality by using a Web Extender Client component such as FrontPage Server Extensions.
Note The 64-bit version of Internet Explorer cannot use the Microsoft Data Access Internet Publishing Provider components.
