Multiple password prompts in checkpoint
Posted on 2002-07-10
We have a checkpoint firewall running on a sun box with solaris 8.
I personaly do not manage the unit, but have been unable to get a solution to this problem.
On our client machines upon accessing the internet you need to provide your username and password.(once)
Over the last few months different users have been complaining that they are now being prompted 2 and three times for a password when using the internet. Once this happens they will always be prompted multiple times.
The clients are windows 98/me and one with win 2000. Most have IE6 or IE5.5 installed. The websites are not restricted sites, happens when opening the browser up and it goes to the start page. Once on the internet usually do not get prompted again.
