Automatically sign in if Anon access and AD authentication are enabled

We have a MOSS 2007 sharepoint web application where we have anon access turned on.  If a user has Active Directory credentials, they have to click the sign on link to get the full benefit of being authenticated.

Is there a way to make this happen automatically so they don't have to click the sign on link?

You could extend the web application into a different zone and have anonymous auth turned off.  This should then authenticate via AD.  Though the issue with this becomes having 2 URLs...1 for your associates and one published for anon

What we are trying to get away from is having two different URL's.  Is there a way to have the same URL's for both in the method you describe above?

Our user's will have a very difficult time with two URL's--Uggh.

I agree.  I am not a fan of 2 URLs either, though we have them in our environment (FBA users on an extranet).

I am seeing no other ways out there, and any anon SP sites I have ever been at on the web go anon first.

It might be possible to use the same URL with a redirector, though I am not sure how the specifics would work..  I woudl envision it working kind of like this -- Your internal DNS would point to the existing site and be AD auth, your external DNS would use the same host headerbut would point to another site, which would redirect to the second URL automatically.
