PUT method authentication issue to SharePoint

PUT method authentication issue to SharePoint

PUT method authentication issue to SharePoint

I have a web service that uses httpWebRequest PUT method to take a network file and place it in a SharePoint library.
When I run this service from my workstation it works perfect, but I receive an 401.2 authentication error when trying to run it from a production server. It grabs the network file ok but errors with calling GetResponse.
The web service is using the Network Service account.

I have spend hours trying to get this to work. Does anyone have any ideas on what the problem may be.

Thank you

Function UploadFileToSharePoint(ByVal UploadedFilePath As String, ByVal SharePointPath As String, ByVal LogFileName As String) As Boolean
        Dim b As Boolean = False
        Dim x As Int16 = 0


            Dim request As HttpWebRequest = WebRequest.Create(SharePointPath)
            request.Credentials = CredentialCache.DefaultCredentials

            request.Method = WebRequestMethods.Http.Put

           Using stream As Stream = request.GetRequestStream()
                Using fsWorkbook As FileStream = File.Open(UploadedFilePath, FileMode.Open, FileAccess.Read)
                    Dim buffer() As Byte = New Byte(fsWorkbook.Length) {}

                    Dim i As Integer = fsWorkbook.Read(buffer, 0, buffer.Length)

                    Do While i > 0
                        stream.Write(buffer, 0, i)
                        i = fsWorkbook.Read(buffer, 0, buffer.Length)

                End Using
            End Using

            Dim response As HttpWebResponse = Nothing
            response = request.GetResponse()

            'verify the new file is in the sharepoint library
            b = FileNameExistsInSharePoint(SharePointPath, LogFileName)

        Catch ex As WebException
                  End Try

        Return b

    End Function

RE: PUT method authentication issue to SharePoint

Forgot to mention that the web service is using integrated authentication. Web config user identity = true.
