I am having a Windows 2008 R2 computer named testcomputer with Apache webserver installed. The computer belongs to domain test.
I log on to testcomputer as test\user1 and start Internet Explorer 8. I try to connect to the local website http://testcomputer
. Since this is an intranet site, IE tries to connect me as current user, but this fails with "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage". If I change the IE security options to "Prompt for user name and password", and do another try, IE prompts me for the name and password. I enter the SAME information of the already logged on user, and I see the website without any error message.
Now I log on to another computer, i. e. testcomputer1, as test\user1, and try to access the website http://testcomputer
. I see the website without any other interaction or error message.
Question: Why doesn´t the integrated authentification work if I am logged on on the same computer as the webserver runs? Thank you very much!
