Can we avoid domain?

  Asked By: Raghav    Date: Feb 22    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 992

to log on to extranet, user has to mention user name, password and domain name,
is it possible for us to configure a default domain, and user will not have to
mention the domain name.

The only way to get around the domain  is to set this up in IIS.
Currently your site is configured as using Integrated authentication.
Change it to Basic authentication and it will also allow you to put in a
default domain. Give it a try and let me know if you still have

Be aware that using basic authentication causes a lot of problems (I've been
through them all)
- users have to authenticate a lot of times, sometimes two or three times
- discussions on documents do not work (known issue)
- upgrade to sp1 will fail if you have not performed it yet

I would not recommend the use of basic authentication on IIS

Don't know what kind of problems you are having, but I have 3 live sites that
have been running for over 6 months now with no major problems or issues.
