Hi There,

For IE on Server 2008, you need to ensure the URL of your SharePoint site is added to the Local Intranet Zone of the browser under Server 2008. That's the only way IE will send your credentials to SharePoint ... This is displayed at the bottom of the status bar ... I've included a screen shot of where this is shown. You can double click on the zone displayed to ensure your SharePoint site's URL is part of the "Local Intranet Zone".

With regard to Firefox, this link shows you how to enable NTLM authentication in Firefox, and that's what you need to get Firefox to


Hope that helps
