Sharepoint 07 site constant prompt for passwords
Posted on 2010-01-12
I have read a few articles on how to suppress constant password prompts when dealing with Sharepoint 07. Here's our situation.
We have a Sharepoint 07 site assigned to us by a separate IT dept. We have control over it's content and structure, but we do have access to the IIS box on which the Sharepoint site is housed. We have our users remote into an application server running Windows Server 2008. When there, a script automatically directs them to our Sharepoint site where they can work. We do this because the App server has the right version of Word (Word 2007) we want all users to use when modifying docs in doc libraries. However, we are seeing the "excessive" password prompt issue as described in many articles on the Internet. I have made sure that the site is part of the user's trusted sites (did this through GPO and even on user profiles themselves). Also made sure the "Automatic Logon with Current User name and Password" option is checked under the trusted site settings.
Still, we get a windows password prompt (need to provide domain\username and password) for the initial arrival at the site, and once you click on any of the docs in a document library. There is no security certificate associated with the site (just an FYI). Seems the issue I'm posting this to is related, but I don't have a problem with users not being able to see specific images on the site, it's password prompting issues. Think I've tried all available options. Anyone have any other ideas? Thanks!
