RE: Windows authentication - get prompted

Hello Dave,

Based on the issue description, I think the problem could be caused by the
following things:

** You use integrated windows authentication in IIS(of your
application's virtual directory)

** the Applciation virtual directory has allowed anonymous access.

When developing through VS 2005 integrated testserver, it automatically
running under your logon user. However, when under IIS, if you allow
anonymous, the client user(browser side)'s account won't be passed to
server and when your appilcation's authorization reject the access, it
prompt for user credential.

You can check in the IIS to verify this, if there is any other finding or
question ,please feel free to let me know.
