Thanks, Raterus,

so, there is not such solution? Closing a browser means you don't see a web resource, meaning you have to open the browser still. Catch 22. :)

I know, that for some web resources on our intranet, when a virtual directory (which is mapped to a physical location) is missing mapping credentials, the users receive a standard authentication prompt.

May this behavior be emulated - this is the question?

Best regards,
