Server 2012 R2 with Webdav setup, server is remote to office. Attempting to connect over the internet via HTTPS.
I can access server via web browser (https://server:port/folder) - logon with defined user credentials.
I am unable to map a drive or add as network location, which is what is really needed.
Am seeing the connection attempt in IIS logs, and the following errors:
401, 5, OPTIONS, /folder, -,
200, 0, OPTIONS, /folder, -,
401, 5, PROPFIND, /folder, -,
405, 0, PROPFIND, /folder, -,
SSL is required. Authentication is set to Basic. Directory browsing is enabled.
Any idea why I cannot map a drive or add as network location?

This is the correct steps to map a drive.
If you cannot connect to webdav directory, one thing you need to update in the windows registry.

I changed the registry entry on the PC (Win10 Pro) that I am testing from, was at 1, changed value to 2. Also checked and server was set to 2.
Can still browse via web browser, but cannot map drive or add network location.
Map drive error: the network name cannot be found
Network location error: the folder you entered does not appear to be valid

You can check machine's setting at HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\NetworkProvider\Order.
The ProviderOrder should be LanmanWorkstation,RDPNP,webclient. If you find some empty entries in the order, please delete it, make it like
Another thing is you should start webclient service. Enter the command in cmd.
sc config "WebClient" start=auto
sc start "WebClient"
