There may be no answer for this one but I am giving it one last shot. I have configured WebDAV on IIS 6 so users can access home drives from outside our organization. I removed all authentication but Basic (using SSL) and added our domain (I do not have anonymous log on for the server or any virtuals). On the virtual directories I have checked "Always use the authenticated user's credentials when...." along with Read, Write and Dir Browsing. ACL's are set to give the users modify (even tried full control). I created a simple page that the user clicks a link to open the page. So here is what happens:
go to site - user is asked for authentication
user clicks on link - user is asked for authentications again
user clicks on a document - user is asked for autentication again
I would think that with the virtuals set to pass on the credentials we should not see this. I have tried to set the IE web browser to "Automatic logon with users logon and password". I have tried removing the domain from Basic auth. I have tried domain\user for logon. I have verified the server variables (username and password) are on the server correctly. It seems to be unfixable at this point and may have to live with it but incase anyone else has an answer... Please do not forward me EE articles I have read them all, one person gave up on finding the solution I am just having some hope.
