2.9B - Error during passthru authentication with IE on Vista

Question asked by pduval on Feb 14, 2008
Hi all,

I installed Alfresco 2.9B with NTLM authentication.
The PDC is a windows 2003 server, the Alfresco machine is a Linux Ubuntu 7.10.

Passthru authentication on the web interface appears to work fine for users using Internet Explorer on XP machines, but for users using Internet Explorer on Vista, the following error occurs:

In the log extract above, MYDOMAIN\NED is the PDC (windows 2k3, ip,
and the Vista client is the ip (user philippe)

The ntlm-authentication-context.xml file contains the definitions below:


    <bean id="authenticationDao" class="

<property name="nodeService"><ref bean="nodeService" /></property>

    <!– The authentication component.                                      –>

        <property name="guestAccess">
        <!– <property name="domain"><value>MYDOMAIN</value></property>  –>
        <property name="servers"><value>MYDOMAIN\NED</value></property>

Any idea what to do to solve this?
