I have a Windows XP (home edition) system here and whenever I make a
connection to a file share, like \\samba-server\username, the XP system
tries to make a connection to port 80 on that system (often tries 3-5

I turned on the apache webserver on the Samba server, and got the error

windows-xp.ip.address - - [03/May/2002:16:10:30 +1000] "PROPFIND
/username HTTP/1.1" 404 288

Does anyone know what it is trying to do?

I am authenticating the user with NIS.

thanks in advance
