Currently, I have to implement an auto login function for my mediawiki and I have enabled windows authentication on my IIS 7.5. It is working on localhost without any prompt.
However, when I tried example.com/wiki/index.php it is giving me the prompt and after entering the credentials 3 times. I am given a 401.1 error. I've tried adding *.example.com to IE intranet zone but is not working.
My question is how to have the browsers (IE/Firefox/Chrome) to autologin for me when I use Fully Qualified Domain Name to access my site? Since it is working properly (no prompt) on localhost, I assume my settings are correct?
Another question is, how does the auto login works when deploy to live server since the client's browsers are not configured? I read something about group policy but I am not sure if I am on the right track.
Could anyone guide me to the correct direction? Thanks so much!!
