I'm just attempting to trial Sharepoint in our organisation, I am using a VMWare image of server 2008 R2 on which I have installed Sharepoint and it's pre-requesits (all installs happened without error).
I have logged into the sharepoint site on the sever and have tested that it is working correctly (added a site, some content etc...)
However when attempting to log into the site from a client it fails (I get asked for my login details which I enter in the format of domain\username + password and then it just pops up with the logon box again this just repeats until IIS gets bored and cuts
We use Linux and Mac clients so have been testing with ubuntu, I have tried both Chrome and Firefox and various permutations of username format e.g. email@example.com
In the end thinking it was just a cross platform compatability issue I tried it on a windows 7 machine, same problem... Only thing I havn't tried yet is a machine in the same domain (could this be it? if so how to I get machines to access sharepoint that
are not members of the domain?)
Seeing as this is my first Sharepoint installation I am expecting that I have missed the 'Check this box to make sharepoint work' check box somewhere along the line any help would be greatfully appreciated
