Symptoms

When you use Microsoft FrontPage to open an existing Web site on a Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS) computer, you may be repeatedly prompted to enter a user name and password, even though your logon information is correct.

Cause

This behavior occurs if IIS is configured to use Windows Integrated Authentication or Windows NTLM Authentication. These types of authentication are also known as NT Challenge/Response.
