They are all members of the same Domain that the portal is on. If I give
them coordinator right they do not get have the problem. Also this is not
affecting all users. We have mix of win  95, NT 2000 users.

This seems to be affecting mainly 2000 users. I have sp2 for 2000, sp1 for
office XP and IE 6 on these work stations. user  do not have local admin
rights, but 2 of them have Domain admin rights.

Have you installed any antivirus software on your SharePoint server

Check the IE LAN Auto Config settings. We have run into this same problem
in our environment (W2K SPS Servers and WINNT4 network domains). We
determined that having IE "Automatically detect settings" and "Use automatic
configuration script" turned on, was forcing unnecessary authentication
prompts. Try turning these options off in the browser and see if you still
get prompted.

portal and did not think about that.

But, I'd settle for a more stable SharePoint
Portal Server product or at least some hard core information about what /
when Version 2 is going to happen.

Answer #11    Answered By: Meaghan Webster     Answered On: Aug 29

Unfortunately nothing is known. With the delay of .NET server I'm
wondering if the release of SPS v2 won't be changed as well. The
original plans were to release a version this year from what was

As SPS relies on lots of Exchange 2000 technology it is probably
interesting to keep an eye on developments in that area.

Well, One thing before we start drinking. I uncheck those items and went
around checking and we are still getting prompted  to logon. I don't
understand if I give then they have coordinator right it does not happen,
but if reader or author as you moves from page  to page it prompts you. PS.
That is a pretty cool site www.Realbeer.com I will have to talk to the head

In all seriousness. What web parts are on the pages you are looking
for? I seem to remember a problem I had early on in my deployment where
we had some of the office XP components installed on the server (such as
the outlook calendar) while the client computer only had office 2000
installed on it.. After removing the Web parts, the problem went away.
If that IS the problem you are having, you might try installing the web
components off of the office XP cd on the client computer and see if you
still have the problem.
