New here, but thought this might be a good place to start. I've noticed some similar discussions here and tried searching, but didn't find an answer to my problem.
I'm hosting a couple of web sites at a web hotel. Some are Unix-based, some are Windows-based. The web hotel naturally offers a statistics-service. The Unix-based hotels show statistics properly without any problems. The Windows-based hotels, on the other hand...
When I try to view them, I go to nameofmywebsite.net/stats. I'm currently using Windows 7/IE8. With Vista/IE7, there was no problems, but now the "Windows Security" pop-up appears, asking for the user name and password.
As you know, the default domain seems to be the name of the computer. In this case TJPDT. So I've tried to access the domain with nameofmywebsite.net\username which does change the domain, but the pop-up keeps appearing until there comes the page telling me I don't have the credentials to view the site.
I've tried to reset IE-settings, lowered security settings etc... No luck. However, when I try to access the stats with Firefox, the thing works. Firefox just brings up a pop-up and asks me for the username and password for nameofmywebsite.net and there's no mention of my computer's name as the domain anywhere.
So my guess is that IE just doesn't send the user name and password properly to my web hotel. I'm now getting the pop-up that has the proper domain name at the top "Connecting to nameofmywebsite.net", but the user name is still nameofmywebsite\username and there seems to be no way of changing that. If I try to use another credentials, the domain defaults back to TJPDT.
And yes, I have typed the user name and password manually, not used copy/paste (a problem I came across while searching for an answer).
While this is not a huge thing since I can use Firefox to check the stats, any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
