I am trying to set up a new web site using IIS7 on Windows 2008R2 The instructions i am using say to enabled Windows Authentication as seen below:

Auth

The instruction say that when i try and request a page from the new site I should be prompted with a dialogue box that asks for credentials. But, when I request the page it shows up without a prompt. I tried both Explorer and Chrome and neither prompted for credentials.

What steps am i missing?

  • Are you logged in as a authenticated user on your Windows client? – Lenniey Apr 19 '18 at 13:25
  • Yes I am logged in as a authenticated user on your Windows – user1181226 Apr 19 '18 at 13:29
  • Then your cached Windows credentials are being used (if there is no error). If you absolutely MUST have a login form, you have to use Basic Authentication, for example. – Lenniey Apr 19 '18 at 13:37
  • Yeah. That is the mai nreason to use windows authentication - in a domain, people are never asked, login is transparent. – TomTom Apr 19 '18 at 13:48
  • If your machine and the server are joined to the same AD domain then you won't be prompted for authentication when accessing the site. Your browser authenticates "transparently" to the server using your credentials. If your machine and the server were not joined to the same AD domain then you would be prompted for credentials, but only after your browser first attempted to authenticate with your credentials. – joeqwerty Apr 19 '18 at 13:59
