Folks,

I know a web server is doing windows authentication because when the site is accessed from the Intranet, it automatically logs me in via NTLM.

When I access the site from a computer that is not on the AD domain, I pop up box with a prompt for username and password. It says "Windows security" on the pop up.

My question, is this still windows authentication or did it fail over to BASIC authentication?

It is windows authentication only since you are logging in from a different non trusted domain /workgroup system and it needs to authenticate it and after supplying the proper windows credentials it will enter you into the site, but if the user login from the existing domain it will never prompt for the username and password provided the user has access to the site..........
