Page with multiple IFRAMEs

    We have a web page with IFRAME "portlets". Each "portlet" is served
    from either a different virtual server, or from a different server. All
    these servers are in the same domain. The pages use integrated windows
    authentication.

    When the user visits the page he/she is prompted for a login for the
    server. The user types in a known username. This is expected. However,
    the user is prompted for each IFRAME; the client PC doesn't know that
    these seperate servers are in the same domain so there is no actual
    "domain login".

    Our options are:

    1) Establish a trust - not possible due to infrastructure constraints.
    2) Use DNS mapping/URL re-writing to make it look as if the pages are
    all on the same server; i.e the URL will always point to the same
    server even if the pages are actually somewhere else.

    I'm interested to know whether option 2 would work. Please can you help

  2. Approach #2 should work just fine. Under normal circumstances, the
    credentials cached by the client browser for the main page will be passed
    for the iframe source pages if they appear to load from the same site.
    However, if you're in doubt, why not just try it with a simple sample?
