Popup Authentitcation randomly with Apache Reverse Proxy RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    I have experencied the following bug into my Sharepoint 2007 farm:

    There is just one server with NTLM authentification and the user access through a reverse proxy based on Apache.

    When the user works on it sometimes when he clik on a different link (not the same) the popup authentification appears, when i click on the cancel buton the page is displayed and sometime I get an HTTP 401.1 error.

    Note: I have followed the technet procedure about the AAM

    Any idea?

  • Hi,

    We have deactivated the WIA on the IIS web site and setup the Basic Authentication with SSL and now  all work fine.

     The problem comes from the proxy server and not the reverse proxy. NTLM authentication through a proxy does not work very well.

    Thank you
