Problems accessing Sharepoint site with Internet Explorer - Works fine with Firefox
I have a single web application where our partners who reside outside our firewall can not access the Sharepoint site using Internet Explorer 7. These same users have no problem accessing the web application using Firefox. Outside the firewall, I have been able to access this web application on an XP and W7 PC running IE8 with no problems noted.I should note that we have other web applications where partners outside our firewall have no problem accessing their web application using various versions of IE.We are using NTLM for authentication.The web application is available directly outside our firewall. The user enters their ID and Password, and Internet Explorer acts like the user entered the wrong password. If the same user launches Firefox and then enters the same ID and password, they are authenticated and the web application loads the page to the screenI would appreciate any help on where I begin to start troubleshooting this. I have already asked them to add the site as a trusted site. Thanks in advance for your help! I look forward to hearing from you.
