HOTWO: Logout of NT authentication?

I have an ASP application which is secured using NT security, so that visitors to the web site receive a popup window in which they have to enter an NT username and password when visiting the site.  Normally this browser instance then stays instantiated 'forever' - i.e. until it is terminated.

Question: I've been asked if it is possible to implement a logout button, with the effect that when the button is clicked, the browser loses its NT authentication, and if they visit the site again later, they would have to re-enter the NT username and password.  Is this possible, and if so how?

Thanks

Michael

Sorry, you can't without closing the browser - as you found out, already.

You may login, and logout, for an MS Exchange account, but not for NT security.

Hmmm, that is what I thought.  I was really hoping someone might tell me different!

What has been said is correct.

But you can to some extent force the re-entry of the password.

This is quite complex to do and there is a PAQ that covers this which is Q.10152139

Thanks for the info - I thought this was the case, but wanted a second opinion.
