We've installed a fairly large number of small SharePoint 2007 environments. All of these have had their own Active Directory, specified to <domainname>.local. These
have been accessible from Internet, and have simply had a external DNS pointingwww.<domain>.com to the server.
In these SharePoint 2007 environments we've used Windows Authentication, and logging on has simply been a procedure of specifying username and password. It has worked just fine.
However, in our first SharePoint 2010 environment, we're encountering odd problems. We use here NTLM authentication, and domain name is <domain>.local. The domain name used in Internet iswww.<domain>.com,
which points to the SharePoint 2010 environments frontend server. We'd like to login to the SharePoint environment with simple <username> and password, but it fails. We have to explicitely specify <domain>\<username> and then password to
Why doesn't this work, and is there any relatively easy way to fix this without disturbing the environment?
