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.
