IE8 on Windows 7 - https auth not working
Dear group,

I have a system where by a zip file is downloaded from a web server
(apache) over https and using an apache directive for the usename/password
(such as below). The problem is that the username and password is never
excepted in IE8 on Windows 7 (32bit). It works in FireFox,Chrome,IE7 (vista
32 bit), and ie8 on xp.
Any help appreciated.
Thanks.


<Directory <dir_location>>
AuthType Basic
Authname "Username and Password Required"
AuthUserFile /etc/httpd/<htpasswdfile>
Require valid-user
</Directory>

Use a http tracing tool like Fiddler2 to see what is being sent by Apache to
IE, it might be that there's a problem with the 401 response formatting.

What security zone does IE show your site as being in? If it's in the
Restricted Zone then IE will ignore any authentication requests.
