Can't log on in Internet Explorer

Nick Watts
I have XWiki 1.6.1.13621 installed on Tomcat 6.0.18.  I am having some
problems logging in when using IE 7.  I'm putting in what I know is a valid
username and password, but after submitting the login form I am brought back
to the login screen.  I found a closed issue in Jira that may be the same
problem I'm running into (http://jira.xwiki.org/jira/browse/XWIKI-2211).  I
have never had a problem with Firefox or Safari, only IE.  Something to add
to the mix though is that I was able to login with IE from within the LAN
where XWiki is installed using my work laptop.  If I try to login with IE on
the same laptop, but across the Internet, the login fails.  Does anyone have
any insight into this problem?

Esbach, Brandon
Any cookie restrictions setup on the IE options?

In xwiki.cfg, have you specified the login name name (bind_dn) as
domainusername (in xwiki.cfg it would be domain\{0})?
Firefox can authentificate using only username, but IE needs to
specify domain also.

This is most likely a cookie problem. Try cleaning cookies first, and
see if you can login afterwards.

I tried cleaning out my cookies and the problem persisted.  I also tried
adding my site to my list of trusted sites which didn't work either.  I even
took the security all the way to low for trusted sites with no change.

Re: Can't log on in Internet Explorer

I think I finally found the problem, even though I haven't resolved it yet.
I don't think the problem is XWiki.  I am using the free service that
www.no-ip.com offers.  I'm using their services to map a domain name to a
dynamic IP address.  My real domain name forwards to the no-ip domain name.
Somewhere along that trail the cookie is getting dropped (if that's the
right term here).  If I go to my site with the real IP address the login
works fine.

Even though this isn't a problem with XWiki, has anyone else experienced
this problem by chance?
