I've seen this question asked many places, but no definitive answers.
I have a SharePoint web application that is configured for external users to connect to. It is using basic authentication with SSL. The default domain is set.
If I use Chrome or firefox I can use only my username and password to authenticate. However, IE requires the domain name to authenticate.
I've seen many answers that say this is by design, however is there any way around this? Custom forms based auth my only option?
