We have a client that has multiple sites throughout town. We have set up a hub and spoke toplogy with the SBS 2003 server located at a central location. Each site has a an AD replicating all of the information locally from across the WAN. The sites are connected via a Multitech RF550VPN router. Connectivity, DNS, and email are working with no issue throughout the sites. Even connectcomputer works at a remote location. The issue currently is that when a user attempt to open companyweb from a remote site, you are prompted for a login. If you give your domain login, you have access to the site.
Here are some facts:
1 - http://companyweb
resolution works with no issue from each site, ping and via IE
2 - All computers are members of the domain and users are logging in with their domain credentials
3 - All users are listed in the companyweb site as users of the companyweb site with proper permissions
4 - Each remote location IP scheme has already been granted access to the Companyweb virtual directory
5 - The clients have IE enabled for integrated windows authentication in the Internet Options - > Advanced -> Security section
6 - http://
companyweb had been added to the trusted site list on each computer.
7 - Companyweb from the main location works with no authentication required
8 - Companyweb works with no issues from the remote location, once the user had entered their credentials
I am having a hard time determining the reason that the credentials, which are already there because the user is logged in to the domain, are not being passed to IE for companyweb authentication. I do not want to open up the companyweb for anonymous access and then have the user log in when they hit something that is locked down.
Thanks in advance for your help....
