"Connect As" dialog box

  Asked By: Jyoti    Date: Mar 28    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 6826

A bit of a strange one.....

I have a portal set-up and all my security is in place at dashboard, folder
and workspace level.

In Management > Workspace Settings > Security "EveryOne" is a reader.

One of the users of the workspace has come across the following problem when
accessing a number of documents...

When they click on the document title they are prompted for a username and
password...it is the "Connect As" dialog box that sometime appears when
trying to access something in My Network Places - not the authentication
dialog box which asks for username, password and domain. So the dialog box
appears and if the user clicks cancel the document still opens.....??
Security within Sharepoint on the folder/document is set to EveryOne=Reader.

When I logged onto the users PC I got the dialog box as well even though I
do not get it on my own PC which seems to suggest that the problem is PC
specific. But Internet Settings and Network Settings are all correct....

If anyone could suggest anything that might be causing the problem I would
be delighted....
