Single Sign On for Sharepoint and external applications

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 07, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
We would like to set up our Sharepoint 2010 Server to allow for single sign on. Right now when a user accesses the site, they are prompted for their username and password, whenever they open a file from a document library they have to put in their username and password. I am sure there is a way that we can set up Sharepoint to not require this every time they access the site and/or documents, by using their windows login like Dynamics CRM does.   Can anyone assist us in getting this set up properly? Thanks in advance!
