I am using Web Folders (WebDAV) to give read only access
to a number of files/folders stored on a Windows 2000
Server (SP3) Running IIS 5.0

I have set the permissions on the Virtual Directory (and
all sub directories) to use Windows Integrated

I am also restricting access on a folder by folder basis
using NTFS permissions so that User1 logs on and
see's/has access to one set of folders and User2 logs on
and see's/has access to a different set of folders.

The users have local accounts created on the web server
and are prompted for Username/Password as they enter the
site, which is what I want.

The problem is that when a user attempts to open a file
they are prompted again for username/password, this
happens for every file they attempt to open. When they
supply the username/password the file opens correctly

I need to find a way of stopping this multiple
authentication request.
