'Access denied due to server configuration- ways to get round this

  Asked By: Cierra    Date: Apr 17    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 2238

When our SharePoint site is accessed from certain clients they cannot
log onto the Portal and the error 'Access denied due to server
configuration' is given. How do we get around this and change the
configuration on either the clients or the server so that they can
access the Portal.

This is usually a problem with Integrated Authentication - either the user isn't
logged in with a domain account, IE is not configured to allow Integrated
Authentication, the user is using a browser that doesn't support it (e.g.
Netscape), or the user is accessing via a firewall or proxy that doesn't support
