My application is using Active Directory,ASP,VB6.0,SQL
server etc.I set the settings at IIS for Default Web Site
properties under "Directory Security" > "Anonymous access
and authentication control" > "Edit" as below.
1.unchecked for "Anonymous access" (no user name/password
required to access this resource)
2.Checked for "Basic Authentication" (password is sent in
a clear text)
3.checked for "Integrated Windows Authentication".
After i set properties as like above, when i access any
applications,it is prompting for user id and password for
first time.From next time on wards it is not prompting
for userid and password.But my requirement is whenever i
access that application from any OS and any IE version,it
should ask userid and password.
I did not set anything at any client machines.
Below i am explaining possible scenarios.
1.If i am testing same application at Win XP Prof.Edition
and IE 6.0,always it is prompting for user id and
password. Nothing wrong here.
2.If i am testing same application at other Win XP
Prof.Edition and IE 6.0, only first time it is
prompting,from next time onwards it is straight away
going inside application without prompting.
3.If i am testing at Win 98 and IE5.0, i am getting same
problem like above point no.2
4.If i am testing at Win 95 and IE 5.0 or 6.0, i am
getting result like point no.1.
I am not able to trace the real problem, some PCs asking
UserIds and passwords, some are not asking.
Can any one please guide me how to solve this problem?is
i need to set any settings at Client side also(i don't
think so,this is not advisable too)
Feel free to ask any further details.Waiting for your
