How to make IIS use domain username and password for all iterations of the server name RRS feed

  • Question

  • How can I make IIS not require a login for other iterations of the name and IP of the server?
    EX:
    http://servername     this never requires a user to log into IIS
    http://servername.domain.com (used by some VPN connections) always requires  a username and password
    http://<IPAdress> always requires a username and password.


    How do I fix this?

  • Hi,

    You can add all the addresses to one security zone (e.g. Trusted Sites) and set "Automatically logon with current user and password" setting in IE for that zone. In order to do so, open IE, go to "Tools / Internet options / Security" and then choose the zone to which you want to add all addresses and add them.

    I hope that helps,

  • Adding the names to intranet resolved the issue.  Now it's up to the domain admins to add it to the group policies.
    Thank You
