IIS 6 asking for username/password from LAN users

Posted on 2009-04-20

I am making a Intranet site and i need it to allow access to all the users that already authenticated on their local PC. so i clicked on Directory Security > Edit > and turned off anonymous off and checked integrate windows authentication.
however when i browse to the site now it is asking for my user/pass. its as if my credentials are not passed to the IIS.
any idea?

Thank you,

    after some further testing, IE seem to only work for me ! other users when using FF they get user/pass dialog and when using IE they get

    error in application \
    Access Denied

    integrate windows authentication is part of Windows only, and this is the reason it only works with IE. if you want to use it with Firefox & IE then you need to use Basic Authentication Method, but in that case every user needs to enter their login info Manually.
