How to get a new site in MOSS to stop prompting for username and password RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    I have a web application which allows auto login, I created a new web application and everytime I go on, it prompts me for username and password. How do I get the users to auto login into the new web application, is there any changes that I should do on central admin.

  • That is a security limitation in Internet Explorer. Internet Explorer sends credentials entered only to the domain that requested it and not to a different one.

    In addition Internet Explorer will only send the credentials of the user logged in to the client machine only to domains which are in either the intranet or the trusted zone. Please double check the zone information for the new web application.

    Cheers,
    Stefan

  • if you don't want to have any credentials to fill in, you should configure Kerberos Authentication..

    Kerberos is a secure protocol that supports an authentication method that uses tickets provided by a trusted source. Kerberos tickets represent the network credentials of a user who is associated with a client computer. The Kerberos protocol defines the way in which users interact with a network authentication service to gain access to network resources. The Kerberos KDC issues a ticket to a client computer on behalf of a user. After a client computer establishes a network connection to a server, the client computer requests network access by presenting the Kerberos authentication ticket to the server. If the request contains acceptable user credentials, the KDC grants the request. For service applications, the authentication ticket must also contain an acceptable Service Principal Name (SPN). To enable Kerberos authentication, the client and server computers must already have a trusted connection to the KDC. The client and server computers must also be able to access Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS).
