Passing User ID and Password to another IIS Box
Posted on 2008-10-22
I have a website that acts as the company extranet as well as a portal for our users to access their employee information. When clicking on the Employees link they are required to put in their network user name and password. Once authenticated they can browse their employee information. There is a link they can click on once logged in that will take them to their OWA, but OWA is on the Exchange server on another box. When the user clicks on that link they are required to put in their user name and password again.
Is there a way around that? Can I configure the IIS boxes to share the user name and password? Both boxes are in the same domain and are located on the same subnet and all that. Users would like to be able to log in once while inside the firewall and using a computer outside the network, like their laptop or home machine.
