We have just recently switched to session authentication (single server). Attached to this are two pictures, the first is what I see, and the second is what I should see. I have setup the server as per the instructions given by IBM, however I still only see what's in first image.
I have created domcfg.nsf and added a mapping to the correct database and form.

Any suggestions?

None of the listed links above helped in my situation. I am not having issues with the logo, it is not showing the default page. I have no idea where this other sign-on is coming from.

I'll shoot for the obvious...did you add an entry in the ACL for anonymous reader access to the database?

Author

Commented:
Yes.

are you using internet site documents for these servers? If so, is anonymous access in the TCP authentication section set to "yes"

What you are seeing is a default login page if you do not configure a page. My guess is that anonymous access is not enabled and the server and showing you the login prompt to get to your custom form

We are running Domino 8.5. I have setup iNotes Redirector and that is the default homepage. When you visit the homepage, it gives you the form as shown in the first picture. When you login thru that form it directs you to your iNotes email. All of that is fine, it is just that I have been asked to put the company logo on that page.

Load internet site documents is disabled. (With that enabled it disables session authentication)
Could that be my problem? If that needs to be enabled, how can I modify an internet document to allow session authentication?

Hi there zerogeek,,,,

In Fact, in my first post I just wanted to give you some similar examples . However,, you have mentioned the following

>>> I have created domcfg.nsf and added a mapping to the correct database and form.<<<
Please make sure that you have configured it similar to the one shown in the attachemnt
by defining the formname as the " DWAloginForm"
Please have a look and make it exactly similar then update me if you still need some help .

Good Luck

My domcfg.nsf does not have a DWALoginForm. The application I created, inotesredirector.nsf, does tho. That is what it is linked to and it does not work.

Commented:
Where is the form I am seeing located? If I knew that I could just add the logo to it...

Commented:
Hi there zerogeek,,,,

Thank you very much for this clarification. However, to my knowledge that in order to have the page you were asking for  you have to create and configure a Domino Web Access redirect page and here is how to do it :

http://blogs.3sharp.com/timr/archive/2009/04/29/5049.aspx

Then you have to make the configuration of the DWAloginForm . In Fact this is what I am doing in 5 Domino Web Servers of mine


Good Luck

Remember to make the configurations for the Server Document ==> Internet protocol and Http .

Thank you for the replies. However, I have my server setup appropriately for all comments listed above, and I had previously followed the instructions listed. It just seems that I am missing something.

ACL on iwared.nsf
-Default-
Access: Author - Write pub docs, replicate or copy docs, read pub docs, create docs

Anonymous
User Type: Person group
Access: Reader - Write pub docs, replicate or copy docs, read pub docs

Are these correct? I found these on an IBM tutorial. This could be holding me back.

Commented:
Hi there Zeroqeek,,,

Practilcally in the DWAs I am using,,, Here are the settings .


ACL on iwared.nsf
-Default-
Access: Author -  create documents and Replicate or copy documents only

Anonymous
User Type: Unspecified
Access: No Access - Read public documetns and Replicate or copy documents only

But still I highly recommend you to take in to consideration the "DWALoginForm" .


Good Luck

I have it setup to go to the DWALoginForm. However, nothing happens.
It is mapped like so:

DB: iwared.nsf
Form Name: DWALoginForm


Still nothing different happens.

Commented:
Did you set the ACL as I mentioned above ????
On the console run the following command please ( tell http restart ) Then try and update me .

Good luck


Author

Commented:
I changed the ACL settings and restarted the HTTP server. Still having the same issue.

Author

Commented:
I just noticed that after changing to that ACL, it now makes me sign in twice. Once to open the iwared.nsf then again once iwared.nsf locates my mail file.

Commented:
zerogeek,,,,,,

Please check the following :

1- click the Iwared.nsf database
2- click " Setup"
3- click " Server Settings"
4- in " Please select Redirection Type" make sure that the dark one " Selected One " is ( Fixed )
5- Please make sure that in the  filed of :
" Please enter ther server name to use
i.e., http://mail.lotus.com ( or use https//to use SSL)"

There is nothing at all ... Dont put any thing ,,,, check it like this

Good Luck.

Yes. I just realized what it was though. I did not have my ACL's setup properly on the domcfg.nsf

Author

Commented:
Even though they are now setup, I cannot view the images on the DWALoginForm page...

Author

Commented:
It is now working.

Commented:
