SharePoint prompting for Credentials with IE9 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I've just upgraded IE9 on Windows7 32 Ultimate.

    Running WSS 3.0

    However, since I upgraded to IE9 I am being continually prompted to enter my password. If I just click Cancel the documents open, which is strange but it's still frustrating.

    I have previously updated the Register WebClient Paramaeters AuthForwardServerList as per

    Has anyone come up against this and got any solutions to this?

  • Hi TV1234,


    This issue occurs if the virtual server in Microsoft Internet Information Service(IIS)6.0 is configured to use Basic authentication. Your user name and your password do not pass seamlessly from Microsoft Internet Explorer to the Office program. To resolve this issue, please refer to this KB article and try the solution there: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/871155.


    Thanks & Regards,
