IIS - when downloading a Word document from a web page, the links in the word doc prompt for a password when none is needed. How to fix?
Posted on 2008-09-29
I am running a web site on an IIS server (Windows Server 2003). I have a web page that links to a word document. The word document itself contains a large number of links to other word docs -- all to files that are located on the same web server. What is odd, is that when you click a link in the word document, the server prompts for a username and password, when there is none required. You can click Cancel, and it will then show the linked word doc. How can I stop this login prompt from appearing each time a user clicks on a link within this word doc? What is causing this to occur??
