Hello all,

I have an issue im not sure how to resolve. We have a custom site written for us that uses java applets and scripts. We have found that even though we are logged in successfully to the site at times some users get a pop up java screen prompting for user credentials such as username, password, and domain??

Can anyone tell me how to fix this and why its happening?

are you sure that you have this coming from Java applets  (running in your browser on your machine) or that comes form server side?
what deos this pop-up say?

You probably need to contact those who wrote this web site for you

In genarl go to
Control Panel > Java > Advanced tab > Java Plug-in > (uncheck) Enable the next generation.
and also to
Control Panel > Java > Advanced tab > Security >
and allow more things there -and also allow caching password - so after one time it should not pop-up again

When I uncheck the enable next generation plugin tab and relaunch IE it fails. The item needs to be checked off to work correctly.

Any other suggestions?

Are you accessing the page from an IP/DNS or from localhost? If not from localhost try localhost (if on the same server) and tell us if this works.

You can also have a look here: http://oaklandsoftware.com/papers/ntlm.html if your applet uses NTLM.

The way we have it setup up is we have a cache server of the intranet here. We access it through DNS at http://intranet.com

Once there we are logged in successfully but the java pop up which I have a screen shot of up above in one of my posts keeps popping up.

I do not know and scripting language to be honest wtih you and this site was written by someone else. So any help in this with a very "basic" explaination on how to address this is very helpful.

If you have the applet on the same computer as the server and access the server by localhost does it happen? I guess you access it by a URL: http://intranet.com/index.html. If you do http://localhost/index.html does it work? It could be that the applet is properly authenticated only from the localhost.

typing in localhost does nothing.

Is it installed on localhost? When I say localhost I mean applet and server should be on the same machine.

Im not sure. We only use IE so that pretty much locks us in.

Can you try it on ff or chrome? Just to weed out the possibility that it's a browser issue.
