Webdav SSO login issues


We are running confluence 3.5.13 with a custom made SSO.

Users are having issues access our wiki via webdav clients.

I have turn on the webdav loggining and are receiving error messages (log file has been attatched).

We did not experience this with our old wiki server.

We don't experience WebDav issue when I have disable the SSO.

Wondering if there is configuration I need to add to web.xml or seraph-config.xml file.

Unfortunately I am not a expert with SSO and the programmer who created the custom made SSO say it has nothing to do with the custom SSO he created.

I can access the webdav via a web browser.

Hopefully someone give me some light why might be causing our WebDav issue


Many Thanks

So how do you do that (specifically)
