Pass form values to .htaccess or NT Auth
I'm clear on the method of passing the login id and password on the url, as in:
The only problem is that the host also requires a domain. That is, the authentication popup asks for id, password, and domain.
Is it possible to pass the domain value on the url as well?

Have you tried domain\username? That's the way it works with network connections.

That does not seem to work.

ok, well set the default in the iis authentication then.

That may not be possible, as this is on a client's hosted site.
Does anyone know of another solution?

what a hassle. Have you considered using sessions to do authentication instead? I went down the os authentication method but ended up converting it to use sessions.

Yes, ordinarily I would use a database/session-based login. I'm just trying to hack a solution where a client wanted a single form that would accept the username and password and redirect to the correct extranet directory. Those directories are already protected by NT authentication.
Was a good plan and worked in our dev environment...just ran into the domain issue when I tested it on the live server.
