Web Server:

Logging into the either the GO!NotifyLink Admin Web or Client Web console does not normally prompt for Windows Authentication. However, you can enable this prompt if you want to add another layer of security in front of or hide either one of these web consoles.

To enable the Windows Authentication prompt:

1. Open up IIS and navigate down to the Web site on which GO!NotifyLink was installed.
2. Underneath the GO!NotifyLink web site, locate the Admin and Client folders.

Windows Server 2003/IIS 6:

3. First, right click on the admin folder and go to Properties.
4. Next click on the Directory Security tab.
5. Click the Edit button under Anonymous Access and Authentication Control
6. Uncheck the check box for Anonymous Access and check the box for Integrated Windows authentication.
7. Click OK.
8. Follow steps 3 thru 7 to set Windows authentication on the Client folder.

Windows Server 2008/IIS 7 and above:

3. Select the Admin folder.
4. Double click on Authentication icon.
     4a. Or click once on Authentication icon and then click on Open Feature option from the Action pane.
5. Right click or tap the Menu key with the Anonymous Authentication option highlighted
6. Select Disabled option.
     6a. Or click once on Anonymous Authentication option and then click on Disable option from the Action pane.
7. Make sure the Windows Authentication option is enabled.
     7a. If the Windows Authentication option is not listed, you will need to follow the steps in the Adding Windows Authentication Providers <add> document from Microsoft (see link http://www.iis.net/configreference/system.webserver/security/authentication/windowsauthentication/providers/add ).
     7b. Once the Windows Authentication option is listed, verify that it is enabled.
8. Follow steps 3 thru 7 to set Windows authentication on the Client folder.
