I have a company website which uses Windows Authentication. The site runs on Windows Server 2008 R2, IIS 7.
When we try to access it from mobile, we get mixed results - some browsers do succeed to login, some do not even show the login window, and some do show the login window but when I enter the credentials they just show the window once more endlessly.
The breakdown of the options is like that:
HTC One Android 4.22 Native Browser SUCCESS Motorola Xoom 1 Andorid 4.0.4 Native Browser repetitive login Motorola Xoom 1 Andorid 4.0.4 Firefox repetitive login Motorola Razr M Android 2.3.6 Firefox repetitive login Morotola Droid Pro Android 2.3.4 Native Browser error 401, no login screen Morotola Droid Pro Android 2.3.4 Firefox SUCCESS (surprisingly...) Samsung S I mini someting old Native Browser error 401, no login screen Samsung S I mini someting old Firefox repetitive login
I've seen posts saying FIrefox would fix the NTLM login issue on Androids < 4.0, but I see it's not the case on the majority of Androids and also that there is a problem also on Android 4.0.4.
On iOS and WP8 the login succeeds.
My questions are:
- Why is it so?
- What can be done to use Windows Authentication reliably on mobile?
