Can I setup an extranet website in IIS using Windows authentication?

Last Modified: 2015-04-08
I'm working on a new web application.  Users will be logging in sometimes on the domain pc and sometimes from their mobile device that is not on the network domain.  Can I configure this in IIS (7.5) for this web application/site to be a Windows Authentication app?  I mean, will it still work when user navigates to the web site using their mobile device and still be asked to enter their Windows' credential and be authenticated?

Also, is there an option in this Window's Login dialog, a checkbox, to remember the credential with?  

Thank you.
