IIS 7 with Digest Authentication access setup for mp4 videos always prompts for "Enter Network Password" diaglog box on Windows Computers RRS feed

  • Question

  • Simple Server 2008/IIS 7.0 fully patched setup with index.htm file listing mp4 videos.  Because of client data safeguards I have Digest Authentication in place.  When a domain user accesses from the outside, they are prompted for their user name and password.  The index.htm page displays and the domain user clicks on a mp4 video.  The problem is the "Enter Network Password" box challenge comes up for every mp4 video on the index.htm web page.  This happens with Windows 7 running Internet Explorer 10 and XP running Internet Explorer 8.

    If I use an iPad 3 and the Safari browser, I enter my user name and password once to access the index.htm and I am allowed to view all videos without the "Enter Network Password" challenge box popping up.
