I have a LotusNotes Form that is an input form that is used on the web, but when I try to access it I get Error 401 User not authenticated with Netscape 4.79.  The test server that this is running on requires a name and password which netscape asked for twice in the process of getting to this input form and let me continue, but when I try to get the input form I get the above error.  IE works just fine as does Netscape 6.2.  The ACL for the database shows Anonymous and default as editor.  anyone have any idea how I can fix this? Our site needs to be available to Netscape 4.7 and above as well as IE.  Thanks, Boston

If the ACL for the database shows anonymous and default as editor, and you're getting prompted, then there must be some resorce or image being referenced from another part of the server.   View the source from IE and look for image tags or scripts located outside the current database.

You can avoid that kind of stuff by configuring your domino server to SSO.
agreed, Abdel, unless the reference is to some database he doesn't have access to.  Which can happen accidentally.

The lotus notes server that this is running on for testing is password protected for the database area as part of our internal security.  The one that the production database is running on won't be.  The page that the form causing the problem  on is created opening a new window so that the underlyng page with info on it can be seen as the form is filled out.  I think the problem may be that both IE and Netscape 6.2 allow me to indicate that they should save my id and password, so that when the new page is opened they have it, while Netscape 4.79 doesn't seem to offer me that choice.  I'm going to move the database onto the other Lotus Notes server which doesn't have password protection  and access it from the IIS on my personal PC and see if that corrects the problem.  I'm hoping it does, but thanks for all the help.  Boston
Its as I thought, the resource is in a different place.  I didn't consider it being on another server though.  You could just try SSO (multi-server session based login).  Takes about 10 minutes to configure, but once you log onto one server, you're logged onto both.
