Something changed in my 3.2 install that causes all Edit Online operations in IE to open MSOffice files as read-only. I've tried connecting directly via SPP (http://my.host.com:7070/alfresco, and receive the same problem. I've applied the OpenDocumentsReadWriteWhileBrowsing registry change, and I've checked with both Office 2003 and 2007. Same results in all cases. Edit Offline and re-upload works, as does webdav.
This is a file that I uploaded into a folder that I created in a Site that I created. I'm wondering if there are permission issues that I need to be aware of, or some client-tools that need to be installed to make everything work. As I recall when I first downloaded Alfresco 3.2 this worked.
I've since added SSL to Apache (so Apache SSL -> AJP -> Alfresco port 8443), but that does not affect the SPP side (I had to hard-code documentlist.js to use http instead of https since SPP and port 7070 don't seem to like SSL - perhaps there's a configuration to make this happen?). But my understanding is that SSL should not be a problem since directly opening a document from MSWord via the SPP URL also opens read-only.
What are the things I should check or be aware of to ensure that SPP and Edit Online work for all MSOffice users? What permissions must a user have to be able to Edit Online or edit via SPP?
