Does anyone know how to remedy this?

  Asked By: Rey    Date: Apr 30    Category: MOSS    Views: 1310

We have a client who accesses our site. He does have a login and a
He gets prompted when he logs on to the site and then gets prompted
again when he wants to open up a document for editing or viewing in MS
Word (I am assuming he is using either 03 or 07)
Is there any way to eliminate the second login?

What authentication method are you using? Unless you are using
Integrated or Forms-based authentication, no, the second prompt cannot
be avoided without some other intermediate proxy that exposes
authentication to the client  using one of those 2 methods.
Authentication is scope per-process on the client side for security
reasons, so an authentication session in the browser cannot be shared
with an authentication session in Word OOTB.

if you are using windows authentication you cancheck if automatic logon with
user name and password is enabled in th intranet security zone. or you can make
the site  trusted and in the trusted zonze you can enable this option.
