I just added an alternate access mapping entry to one of my web applications and upon trying to access it in the browser I am prompted for authentication over and over again without ever being permitted in. Even entering the site url as a trusted intranet site in IE the prompts do not cease.

I don't think so because LoopBackCheck disabling is for accessing sites from the server which is hosting the site. I get this no matter what machine I am using to access the site. – ChiliYago Jun 13 '11 at 21:34

Voted up to 0 from -1 as it is a good and valid answer, although it may not have been the solution for this particular user. – Muhimbi Jun 27 '11 at 12:11

An IISReset on the web server cleared it up but I am not sure why it took that to fix it.
