I have a pretty common problem with WSS 3.0
When a user logs on to the site using IE 7/8 and opens a word document from a document library he gets prompted for a login / password. At this point, even when cancel is pressed or when the login window is closed the document still opens.
This problem is document online (and here : Forms Authentication, persistent cookie needed by IE, but not Firefox or Chrome)
The solution is to either :
- Add the site to the trusted zone (I can't do that, I have a public-facing website so my users come from everywhere)
- Disable client integration
I disabled client integration (through Central Administration > Authentication Providers) and I still get the problem.
What else do I need to do to disable client integration? Am I missing something? Is there something else I can do to avoid this problem?
