    ISA is getting a denied response when trying to access the username or computername to compare against your authentication process. As it cannot fulfill the authentication process, it asks for manual entry of the credentials. Best practice is to sort that out - no sarcasm intended.

    Is ISA joined to the domain? What authentication process have you used? If ISA is not joined to the domain (best-practice says it is by the way) then how is ISA getting access to the windows groups/AD etc?
