Hi all.

I have a contractor that is not on our domain, we have an intranet page that he has to access quite a number of times (we have a few contractors to) and each time they do they are prompted for their domain details, this is getting annoying for them so i am looking for a way to write a script that will open the page and pass though their domain details to the login prompt bos (attached screen shot so we all know what im talking about)

Any ideas?

Thanks.

This is the correct behavior of IE unless you are looking to implement a single sign on application there is no good way to do this.

You could look the trust relationship between the two domains (if they are both under your control) and if appropriate create a trust to allow access.

One other option is to have the contractors use runas to launch IE under the domain account that has access to the site.
