Trying to access a Sharepoint 2003 Team Site results in an access denied error.
What is weird is that it works from anywhere except from the company I am working from.

This company is in a NT Domain behind a firewall.

The access to the site is login password protected.  When I try to access the site I got the logon popup window but it always answer that I have provided bad credential.  I tried many ways and I can go through this.  It works from everywhere else I tried.

THanks for your help.

are you trying to access sharepoint by a fully qualified domain name - an IP address - or by the machine name? (we have had many problems when trying to connect with just the machine name)

It is with a fully qualified domain name.
Actually I found a work around (Yesterday), it appear that we cannot use Windows authentication method from a domain to another.
So the only working auth method is Clear text. This is bad but I added SSL to this domain, so it is better now.

will sharepoint not allow trusted domains to pass authentication?  It used to be that in IIS you could enter "\" as the domain to authenticate against, and it would check all valid domains that the machine could see.  Also, remember that once you add a "." to a URL then it goes from the intranet zone to the internet zone - so you could also be running into some client config issues.

I tried couple more things with your advices but it does not work.

If I use only Windows Auth. I cannot enter "\" in the domain name. If I enter both windows auth and basic it does not work.  If I use Digest it does not work either.

as in for every element on the page... i.e., no authentication is being persisted....  again look at your security options in IE - notice that one of the checkboxes is for automatic login only in the intranet zone...  try adding your sharepoint site as a trusted site in IE and see if that helps.
