Infopath 2003 form - Intranet asks for username and password when InfoPath form is opened.

Infopath 2003 form - Intranet asks for username and password when InfoPath form is opened.

I have an Intranet and on there I put a link to to an Infopath form (.xsn) however when I click on the link it asks for a username and password.

My profile (admin access) does not ask for this username/password
On most other profiles it does.
When I open the file directly from the network folder on the clients that have the problem with the intranet it opens up fine.

Could this be a permission problem?

Any help is appreciated.

InfoPath uses your Internet Explorer security.
Typically you want the site or server name that hosts the XSN to be in your Intranet or Trusted security zone.  This is under Internet options.  If it is a site you may need to look at the permissions in IIS and the folder permisions.  There is also a known issue with Vista where it does not cache your credential properly.

Thanks for the response.

I added our intranet to the trusted site and had the same problem.
I played with permissions a bit but still came up with the same problem??

I found the solution, when I was putting the link on my intranet, I noticed the system was putting the partial path. I changed it to put the full path \\servername\share\formname.xsn and it works perfect.

Thanks for your input.

I would think it must be a IIS permisions issue.
