I would like to post one wired and interesting issue I faced before few days.
Recently I was deploying one of my project on client end. Basically it was a Web Application but unlike other setups they were going to use that by terminal access. Meaning that all Users of the Portal will be having unique login into their(client's) Windows Network Domain and users will be logging into the Portal by logging into the Server machine first with given Windows domain credentials and then to the Portal.
This setup seems to be easy and no worry as whole portal will be accessed via LOCALHOST only..! Looks odd for any web-application though but that was the requirement for the client (keeping their security concerns in mind).
I have been given Administrative User to login to the server machine and setup everything. I did setup and did my post implementation testing on the machine with my user. Everything seems to be working as expected and I gave green flag to my superior.
Later on I have been buzzed with 2 issues from the Client.
- Portal is not working in Internet Explorer at all.
- Users are not able to download files from my Portal.
I asked for login details they used for testing and which they were actually going to give to their Users.
