Configuring Internet Explorer for Integrated Windows Authentication
Direct link to topic in this publication:
The default configuration of Internet Explorer should allow for using Integrated Windows Authentication, but you can be sure that things are set properly by checking the following:
- Internet Options -> Advanced tab -> [scroll to near the bottom] -> Verify that 'Enable Integrated Windows Authentication' is checked.
- Internet Options -> Security tab -> Intranet -> Trusted Sites button -> Check the three 'Include ....' checkboxes.
- Internet Options -> Security tab -> Local intranet - > Check to see if the level is set to Medium-Low. If it is set to something other than Medium-Low, click the Custom level... button and scroll to the bottom and make sure that the 'Automatic logon only in Intranet zone' option is selected.
- Internet Options -> Security tab -> Local intranet -> Click Sites -> Click Advanced -> Add the HTTP(S) address using the fully qualified name of the web server(s) you are connecting to if you are going to access the servers by their fully qualified name.
When testing Integrated Windows Authentication, only test from client computers and not from the server. You can test using different user accounts by using the runas.exe too. Example: runas /user:contoso\travis 'C:\Program Files (x86)\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe'
