You need to add portal.company.com as a "Trusted Site" in your browser
settings. WIthout this setting your browser thinks the server is not
local since it uses a FQDN, and only local servers with authenticate
without a login prompt.

Will this cause problems if we are connecting from the outside?

What I mean is that we have portables and they can work on the network,
but can also be connected at customers sites.

Those coming in from the outside are likely going to get the login  prompt
regardless. NTLM (the protocol used for authentication with a prompt) usually
won't cross firewalls, so your will need to use Basic for those users. Basic
will always give the login prompt.
