  1. Navigate to My Network Places
  2. Select Add a network place
  3. Enter http://<server>:<port>/repository

  5. You will be prompted for the credentials once again then the Add Network Wizard will display a panel letting you identify a name for the network place.
  6. Click Next 
  7. Select the check box to open this connection and select finish.

You have now a webdav connection to the root of the repository!
