Re: How to pass user credentials to IE

No longer possible for IE to automatically pass server-configured
username:password back to the server. That was deemed a security
vulnerability a few years ago and disallowed on IE with a security
patch and RegKey control.

You can try creating a vdir pointing to your Web application on IIS
with only Anonymous authentication enabled and set the Anonymous user
to be the specific user credential your application needs. Then make
your application call this vdir instead. This allows any anonymous
user to access your Web application, which may/not be what you want.

Basically, you need a custom "many-to-one" authentication mapping, and
since IIS does not come with any modules supporting it by default (but
it can and has been built by others), you have to implement it
somewhere on IIS. IIS only supports any-to-one (Anonymous) and one-to-
one (all other authentication protocols).

My application needs to call a IIS web based application that requires
Windows based authentication. The user credentials that our
application will use is not the same as the user logged onto the
workstation. When calling the web page, IE prompts for a user ID and
password. I would like to know how I can pass the user credentials to
IE to avoid the browser prompt. My application is a Windows client
