I have a web application claim based with ntlm and sql provider ( mix mode authentication). The default login page of SharePoint 2010 , allows me to login the site on Mozilla 10 and Google crome,
but on IE 8 and 9 , it does not redirect me anywhere after windows authentication pop up, nor the user is able to access the application pages by typing url directly ( means there is a problem in authentication rather than redirection only)
I have tried allowing all cookies and adding the site in trusted zone on IE 8 and 9 , but no luck
I had given a hostheader different to the server name, when I revert it back to server name/blank, I was able to use default SharePoint login page perfectly fine.
This is when hostheader had a DNS entry also in place !!!
Are you forced to actually enter a username and password using IE? This might imply a kerberos misconfiguration?
Have you checked Remember me in the login page?
If yes, please try to do some changes in web.config file:
<cookieHandler mode="Custom" path="/" > changed it to:
<cookieHandler mode="Custom" path="/" persistentSessionLifetime="60">
