Sharepoint Authentication - How to keep it from constantly asking for user's credentials
Posted on 2007-01-03
WSS Sharepoint site.
i have two issues, and i believe they are related.
issue #1: i set up a new user in the WSS Manage Users area. i then go to that user's computer and attempt to log in with their credentials. i have to continuously supply the username and password (3 or 4 times) for every page load. they can eventually view the page, but they have to constantly submit their username & password. to fix this, i change the IE Internet Options->Security-?Custom Level to "User Authentication = Automatic logon with current username and password"... but that's not enough. i then have to use a WSS Administrator username and password to log into the site, and then delete the cookies and offline content in IE, and have the user supply their username & password one more time. then they are ok and can view the site without constantly having to authenticate. question: how do i set up a new user and get them to be able to view the WSS site without having to log in as an Administrator first?
issue #2: for some new users, changing the IE setting and logging in as an Administrator does not resolve the problem. they still have to supply their username and password about 3 times for every page load. how do i resolve this?
