I am using a Mac running OS X 10.9.1, and attempting to log in to a SharePoint 2007 site on a windows domain.
If I use Safari, I access the site (
http://mySharePointSite/) and am prompted by the browser for a username and password. I enter 'MYDOMAIN\myUsername' and my password, and am logged in successfully.
If I start a Windows VM, and log in to the domain, then use Internet Explorer, Chrome, or FireFox to access the site, I am prompted by the browser for a username and password. I enter 'MYDOMAIN\myUsername' and my password, and am logged in successfully.
My problem is that if I attempt to access the site from OS X using Chrome or FireFox, I am prompted for my username and password, but entering 'MYDOMAIN\myUsername' and my password does not work - the box simply refreshes and asks me to enter my credentials again, and I am unable to login.
How can I login to this SharePoint 2007 site using Chrome or Firefox on OS X, and what would be preventing it? This does not seem to be a common problem, so I am not sure if the issue is on my side, or on the SharePoint server configuration side.
