Accessing SharePoint via UNC Path Causes Password Prompt

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 10, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
 
I have a script that has to use a UNC path to drop a file into a SharePoint document library. For some users on some computers when they try to access the SharePoint site (http://Sharepoint) via the UNC Path (\\Sharepoint) they get a password prompt. Most users do not get a password prompt and get let right in. I have checked all the obvious things like zone settings, saved network passwords, etc. If I log a user that gets a password prompt into a different machine (that isn't having the problem) then it works just fine. This indicates to me that it is a client issue as opposed to a user issue.

Problem accessing Sharepoint 2007 MySite

  

My users are having an issue accessing their mysites.  When they go to the main portal page or any other site and click the link at the top right of the page to go to their Mysite they are thrown into an endless authentication loop.  If they cancel out of the loop the URL in the address bar is for http://mossserver/_layouts/MySites.aspx

For a user to successfully get to their myself they need to enter the full url like http://mossserver/personal/username/default.aspx

Now, I know somewhat how this happened.  It resulted from me trying to delete a user's mysite and I apparently did it wrong but I'm not sure what I did.  It almost seems like I deleted a redirect page or something...

Looking for any ideas.

Thanks,

Casey


Accessing Username, password, roles in xml file

  

Currently I am storing my username and password (passwordFormat="SHA1") credientails in my web.config.  I would like to figure out how to access them in an xml file that I have stored in my App_Data directory rather than the web.config file because I do not want my application restarting everytime I manually add a user (small list of 5 authorized users for the CMS section).

Here is what my web.config section looks like:

 

<authentication mode="Forms">
      <forms name=".Administration"
            loginUrl="~/SiteAdmin/Default.aspx"
            defaultUrl="~/SiteAdmin/Administration/Default.aspx"
            protection="All"
            timeout="30"
            path="/"
            requireSSL="false"
            slidingExpiration="true"
       &n

Issues accessing saved documents in SharePoint

  

Hello, I believe there is an issue with a current document link in SharePoint.  When we click on the main Document Folder (labelled - Project Descriptions) we are typically provided access to a large list of subfolders and documents.  For some reason now, when we click on the main Document folder, a dialogue box opens up prompting me with the following language:

Do you want to open or save this file?

  • Name: Allitems.zip
  • Type: Compressed (zipped) Folder, 6.13KB
  • From: sharepoint.ambit-consulting.com

If you click "open", you're redirected to a blank page in SharePoint.  Our documents are no where to be found.  Please help.
