Cannot reach SLAC intranet servers (e.g., SLAC protected web servers requiring Windows authentication, such as www-internal.slac.stanford.edu) from a non-SLAC network
If an offsite user (or one on SLAC's visitor network) is having problems using Internet Explorer to connect to a protected directory on a Windows web server, the solution is to:
Otherwise IE tries to negotiate an authentication with the Windows Domain Controllers on the LDAP port and fails since it is blocked. Connecting via VPN would also solve this, but would require further setup..
