I have a server running Sharepoint 2010 called dc03. When I enter the url: http://dc03 in Internet Explorer, then everything is fine, and I am logged in.

I created an A DNS record pointing to the IP adress of dc03.

Now, when I enter I have to enter my username and password, but the site has been setup to allow anonymous users.

Is the server connected via ADSL/cable router (NAT) ? Which IP did you set for A record - local or external ? – Alex Dec 13 '11 at 11:04
The A record is set for internal IP adress. The is intended for use with external also. But this issue is only for internal use for now. The idea is that I would like to be the same for external and internal users. – espenk Dec 13 '11 at 11:08
AFTER you enter username and password, you get to your site or not ? – Alex Dec 13 '11 at 11:10
Then I get in.. – espenk Dec 13 '11 at 12:40
Is there a problem doing it like that? I mean having the internal DNS server pointing to the LAN IP address. A have the same pointing to on of our external Ip address provided by our ISP? – espenk Dec 13 '11 at 13:12

The problem was DNS related. The was pointing to the external address for some reason, even after I changed the DNS servers. So.. that will take some more investigation
