Access SPS via a PocketPC device

  Asked By: Noah    Date: Apr 22    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 724

I can reach any of my internal web sites via my pocket PC to webs that
allow
anonymous access. However, I get prompted for a username and password
when
I attempt to access the SPS site on the same box.

I tried entering domain\username, but it still fails. I am guessing
that
this is because the pocketPC is sending and interpreting
"domain\username"
as "Username" and is not passing the domain at all.

Bottom line:: Is it possible to reach an SPS site via a pocketPC or is
it
like the Home Edition of XP without domain support and thus never able
to
authenticate to an SPS site??

i'm not sure but sps  is only under windows 2000, and windows 2000 use
kerberos authentification, maybe your pocket pc don't know about this
authentification...

If that's the cause then you could set it up to use 'basic
authentication'
or if you'd rather you could use 'basic authentication with ssl'

The only way I could get my boss's pocket PC to work was to click on
basic
authentication. Haven't tried it with ssl yet. However, be aware the
browser on those are very limiting, and they don't understand what
iframes
are, so any customization the browser will most likely not be able to
see.

Haven't tried with 'ssl' either but appreciate the info.

I thought that if you used Basic Authentication with an SPS site  it did
not
work correctly. At a bare minimum, you would lose your user roles
correct?

I believe that you should still have full use of the SPS with Basic
Auth. It is when you allow anonymous users into the site  that you lose
functionality.

Ok, now I am following everyone. Basic vs. Anonymous but the problem with
Basic Authentication is that unless you use SSL your username  and password
are sent in clear text.
