Integrated Security under Win2K and WinXP

Werte Kollegen!

I have a ASP.NET page authenticating via Integrated Security.
For some reason the behaviour on the client is differing depending
on the OS. I have some clients using WinXP and some using Win2K,
all of them having IE6 with the latest updates and all of them having
'User Authentication' set to 'Prompt for user name and password'
on purpose.

Login Prompt appears, user has to enter valid credentials, otherwise
an error occures. This is the desired and expected behaviour.

Empty Login Prompt appears (looks different then the WinXP
prompt). With invalid credentials the error is thrown, but when the
user leaves all fields blank he is being logged on with the current
windows credentials.

In some applications I have to force the user to enter valid
credentials, that is why I don't need the behavior under Win2K.
If I however change page security settings to Basic Authentication,
I get the expected behavior under Win2K as well. My problem
is that transfering the credentials in clear text is unacceptable and
I want to avoid using SSL since there are quite a few pages

What is the reason for this behavior and what is a workaround?

best regards

I wrote a C# windows service and it will install on Win2K but won't start. I have code in it to write to the event log but it doesn't log anything. I developed it on WinXP with VS and it installs and runs fine on that WinXP system. The service is a C# remoting listener if that makes any difference. Does it have to be built on a Win2K box to work correctly? I don't have VS installed anywhere but that WinXP so I can't readily test

I have an application that runs fine on my development machine, no matter where I copy the files to on the local drive. However if I put the files on our network I get a System.Security.SecurityException, even in directories that I have read/write privileges to.

Our intranet is running under windows integrated security. We have domain users that want to access our intranet site via ssl vpn.

Then pass the users credentials to the site running under integrated security. ...

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
