Enabling Single Sign On in Your Web Browser
In order to facilitate a true Single Sign On experience it may be necessary to make some changes to the browser settings located on the client computer. The required settings vary from browser to browser but some common examples are listed below.
Internet Explorer and Chrome
For the Microsoft Internet Explorer browser the following will need to be set, in order for "Authentication Pass Through" to function correctly.
- Tools > Internet Options
- Select the Security Tab
- Click on the "Local Intranet" zone icon, in order to highlight it, then use the "Sites" button.
- The default option of "Automatically detect intranet network" can be left as ticked.
- Click on the "Advanced" button.
- Use the "Add" button to add in the website value of: <federated services address> (for example: https://fs.hornbill.com)
NOTE: The option to "Require server verification (https:) for all sites in this zone" can remain un-ticked.
For the Firefox browser the following will need to be set, in order for "Authentication Pass Through" to function correctly.
- Type about:config into the address bar
- Search for network.automatic-ntlm-auth.trusted-uris
- Add your federated services address, for example: 'fs.hornbill.com' to the value (multiple values can be separated by a comma).
