MECM DP software installations keep failing - Downloads at 0% - HTTP code 405, status 'Method Not Allowed'

For some reason our clients are not able to download packages from the DP via Software Center, but we can browse to the packages via browser just fine.

Basically our jobs get stuck at 0%, our content has been copied to the DP (verified) and we are added successfully to a boundary group. It seems to be permissions related but we do not know.

We have checked Boundary (Group) assignments in the MECM console (added the Column Boundary Group(s) to The Devices overview). The logs also show this: <BoundaryGroup GroupID="16777218", this seems fine. Boundaries are also assigned by IP range.

What we tried:

  1. AV disabled (client) - doesn't help
  2. Firewall disabled (client) - doesn't help
  3. DP Allows clients to connect annonymously
  4. Clients can access the HTTP link directly via the webbrowser, packages are there and can be downloaded without any problems;
    [http://xxxxxx.com:80/SMS_DP_SMSPKG$/Content_9486f285-fedd-4db3-8585-7cf9785cdaea.1]
  1. Have created new packages, have redistributed existing packages - did not solve issue
  2. Reinstallation of the client does not solve anything
  3. Tried disabling eHTTPS with disabling "Use Configuiration Manager-generated certificates for HTTP site systems" but this did not solve the issue
  4. Reinstall the DP role

Bitlocker policies get applied without a problem by the client.

We are using default certificates that came with the installation, no custom certs have been created or uploaded.
DataTransferService.log says the following;

    This can be closed, in the end (after 3 days of troubleshooting) it turned out to be WEBDAV. Removed the feature (Webdav publishing) from the server and it instantly started working.
