Password asked in Firefox?

When logging on to on of our Webbased applications (icp.ist.ac.at, seafile.ist.ac.at,…) you’re always asked for your password even you’re on campus using Firefox?

This can easily be dealt with by:

  1. Enter “about:config” in your Firefox address bar and accept the risk

  2. Search for “trusted-uris”

  3. Double click “network.negotiate-auth.trusted-uris” and make sure it reads: “ist.ac.at,ist.local,ista.local”. Add any domain missing.

  4. Press “OK” and close the “about:config” bar, you should now be logged in automatically, when you’re in the IST Austria Network (On Campus or using VPN).

If you still have issues, or discover this issue with a different browser, please don’t hesitate to contact: it@ist.ac.at
