We just upgraded all our computers to IE 6.0 and our intranet requires Integrated Windows Authenication.  The problem is, if the users computer does not have IWA ticked under security the post method will not work for forms.  Is there anyway of a) first checking to make sure the user has this option ticked or b) someway of automatically ticking it.

Thanks

I'm confused - why would the users be setting IWA?  That's something that is set only on the server so it doesn't ask users to log in.

In IE 6.0 Under Tools - Options - Advanced - There is an option for IWA.  If the server has IWA and the user does not have IWA ticked in their browser POST method on forms will not work.

Its checked by default, is there any reason it would be deselected?  As for checking if it's checked - not without downloading a component to the users machine and then it requires a restart for it work after being checked.

Why do you need to set IWA in browser level?

Because if it isn't set, any page that has a Form and uses the POST method, does not work
