Favicon.ico and Forms based authentication

We have an ISA Arrray which has 3 ISA Servers 2006 Enterprise Editon. We have web publishing rules for sharepoint servers and have forms based authentication enabled. We have place our favicon.ico file on the sharepoint server directory Inetpub\wwwroot\wss\VirtualDirectories\443. when testing this internally on the server we can see the favicon.ico file however when accessing the site from an external connection we can't get the favicon.ico to display. We found that if we switched off the forms based authenication ther favicon.ico will display from externally. how can we get the favicon.ico to work with forms based authentication to work? any help will be greatly appreciated.

thank you

The favicon.ico is used in one of two ways.  The browser looks in the folder the web page is loaded from (you have to copy it into sub-folders OR use the following in each page: <link rel="shortcut icon" href="/favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon" />

hi thanks we will give that a go. however i don't understand why this would work if we turn off the forms based authentication.

I have a feeling that IE gets confused trying to find the favicon.ico when forms authentication is used because there is more redirection involved.  Adding the LINK tag avoids the confusion.
