I have a web site named "TestWebSite".  My IE6 is configured to ask me my LOGONNT, my PASSWORD and the DOMAINNAME.  The fist time, when user "JOHN" logged in IE6, the Domain controler accept.

When the user has finish, he click on "logoff" button on my web page. This button send this string to IE6 :
window.top.location = "http://DOMAIN_TEST%5CJOHN:.@scserver/TestWebSite".  This action ask to IE6 to kill memory cookie and the logon window (of IE) appear.

In Windows 2000 and Windows NT with IE6, it's working very well.  But, Windows XP with IE6, i receive error message and IE6 stop badly.

Description of the string message:
"http://DOMAIN_TEST%5CJOHN:.@scserver/TestWebSite"

"DOMAIN_TEST" : my NT domain name
"%5C" : the char \
"JOHN" : NT logon name of the user
":" : separator logon name and password
"." : way to send blank password
"@" : separator user and page web
"scserver" : my iis 5.0 server
"/TestWebSite" : my web site

Can you help me to resolve this problem with windows XP.

Thanks

If you have XP Home, it doesn't support logging on to a domain.  You need XP Pro to log on to domains.

I care, and I thank you very much.  Sorry for the delay, still no Internet access for us; using family's system briefly in my travels.
