Hi list,

I got the portal going, but I am a bit stumped on the issue of authentication
when accessing the portal.

Problem is that whenever I or any of the users connect to it, it pops up a
login-box requesting the windows login credentials. 

I figured I'd make this portal the default webpage when opening IE, but if
it's going to pop the question every time you access it, I'm not so sure using
WSS is a good idea after all.

I tried tinkering with enabling anonymous access on the webserver the portal
runs off of, but I wasn't allowed in after setting it.

We use this portal on our intranet only, so everybody who's logged on to the
domain should be able to just click the link to the portal and be transferred
to it. Just like the other intranet pages that run off our *nix-servers and
the odd IIS.

Why would I need to authenticate at all while inside the domain? Has this got
to do with the writing to the sql-db?

My main question though is whether there's any way to make this thing seamless
(ie a passthrough authentication kinda'), like a background authentication for
users already logged in to the domain? The login-box should not popup at all
in this case.
