Are the files on a public share or are they located withing the directory structure of your WebSite? How is the directory where the docs are located at being linked to, of off your website? -----Original Message----- From: Ashish [mailto:india_design at yahoo.com] Sent: Saturday, October 28, 2000 09:33 To: thelist at lists.evolt.org Subject: [thelist] Opening Doc file on Intranet Hi People, Designed an intranet site for the company, and put a lot of Word docs on it as well - intention being that user clicks on a link to a template, and IE5+ opens the doc for him in a new window, all ready for him/her to start filling in the details in the Doc. Something weird is happening, when I try to launch a Doc, new window gets launched (as expected), then a pop launches asking for user name and authentication (not expected at all), clicking on cancel launches the doc in the opened window (as expected). This weird thing about password prompt is making me crazy, checked all the IIS and NTFS security settings, nothing out of place, happens only on Doc files - tried ZIP, PPT, EXE, PDF, everything goes through properly without any login information being requested. In the login info, whatever I enter, nothing is accepted. If somebody knows of such a thing happening, would be grateful if I could get a suggestion. TIA, Regards, Ashish __________________________________________________ Do You Yahoo!? Talk to your friends online with Yahoo!
