PaperVision Authentication Gateway redirects users to the login screen instead of automatically logging them in

Description


When a user browses to the PaperVision Authentication Gateway website, they may be redirected to the login screen instead of being automatically logged in. If the user then tries to enter their credentials, they will receive an Error: -28000 Unable to open request. (Source: HTTPHandlerEx.PVDM System).

Summary


This is caused by not enabling Integrated Windows Authentication in Internet Information Services (IIS) for both the PaperVision Enterprise website and the PaperVision Authentication Gateway website. Users will be redirected to the login screen instead of being automatically logged in. Once a user enters their login credentials they receive an Error: -28000 Unable to open request. (Source: HTTPHandlerEx.PVDM System). One way to resolve this error is to browse to http://GatewayURL/AutoLogin.aspx instead of just http://GatewayURL. Another way to resolve this issue is to enable Integrated Windows Authentication for both the PaperVision Enterprise and the PaperVision Authentication Gateway websites. This article documents the steps necessary to enable Integrated Windows Authentication in IIS.
